What Do I Do?


process is primary
asserted whitehead: *

evolution a certainty
say smart quacks.


but i'm in a bit
of an existential bind

right now for you see
my fate is to die

and the only question is -
what do i do?



* Alfred North Whitehead [1861 - 1947]

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
