Poem: Seven Axioms in Search of A Believer 

There are two kinds of people, one still searching,
the other entirely subsumed by persona.

Under the law of compensating madness,
the flaw is essential to the fit.

The continuation of human life on earth
depends on the engagement of soft machinery.

Outside of love, there is only motive.

After you fall through the scenery,
life is never the same.

If we ever really saw what is happening here,
we would never stop weeping.

Home is a heartbreak to build on.
