Aside #1

October 16, 2015

The stupid hen,
knowing only immediate truth–
such as it is presented–
produces an embryo of
its own accord.

Un-self-conscious, we suppose,
the stupid hen
knows only itself
and something, we suppose, of its
defining Other.

This egg is rather cold
At the yolk.
Un-self-conscious, my body
digests this egg
but I am too busy thinking about it.
