a poem for today, 4 August 2012
[a letter sorted sonnet of eight sentences and its image]
This ceteris paribus mentality is inherently atheoretical and noncontextual: it assumes that the same mechanism works in basically the same way whether we apply it in mental health or criminal justice, income maintenance or education.
I give up.
I won't do it again.
I want to, I really do.
It was a failure but many interesting events are failures.
I don't bring this up to drive a wedge between groups, but to make a point.
Lying is a state of war, and irony is a state of peace.
I felt like a five year old with an angry babysitter.
