Before Noon on Saturday

(There have been at least several people in history
who did things that several other people didn’t like.)


Just because an explanation
doesn’t explain anything
doesn’t mean it’s not an explanation.


To complete your education in the city,
you may cease leaning on that wall
and commence leaning on this one.
(Registrar’s Footnote: Those interested in graduate work
may substitute the word “Pushing” for “Leaning.")

Just before noon one Saturday,
a man’s partner suddenly turned and asked,
“If the reports didn’t tell you how bad things are
would you know how bad things are?”

Might I submit some good news
for the religiously wired:
Faith is not dead – everyone
still believes in what they have.
