Secondary History for a Sunday

Even after all these years,
this one guy still faithfully places flowers
at the site of his last thought.


One version of the First and Final Chapters
of Secondary History:

What goes in must come out,
except for the fact that
what goes in was already out.


Those who can refrain
from checking their progress
can probably do well.


The mediocre
tend to find much of what happens,
“highly un-called-for.”


An ordinary thought with “staying power”
also has disMAYing power.
