Poetry of Love, Resistance, & Solidarity

the night watchmen fell asleep1622856_3847566204678_1093079812_n

when Albert Einstein dreamed then

mathematically proved the existence

of a greater spiritual power

and after Milton Friedman

replaced myth with timeless truth leaving

the rest of we mere humans

shimmering above the mirage

wondering what happened

to all of our kinetic collective groping

the truth is A is A and

two plus two does equal four

the truth is it is a beautiful morning

and I am going for a walk in the woods

~ William J. Karnowski

  1. …………………………..leaving

    the rest of we mere humans

    shimmering above the mirage

    wondering what happened

    Stellar.

    I think I will join you in the woods.
