dichotomies and binaries

people make images; images make people.

you can’t find meaning in life unless you take it with you on the search, but
you can’t take it with you unless there is meaning in life.

love is not about what you say, it’s about what you do; but
saying you love someone is among the things you do when you love.

rhyme is like tonality; it’s outlived its usefulness —
unless you have a use for it, in which case never mind.

the difference between judging actions and judging people
is that the first one makes you wish they would change their ways,
while the second one makes you want to kill them.
i consider that a significant difference.

roses aren’t red;
violets aren’t blue –
poetry’s useless
when it’s not true.
and possibly,
even when it is.

con artists these days
typically invoke the language of math and science.
in response,
math and science
have taken to using the methods of con artists.
what advancement.

logical confusion is the source of much trouble between people
and trouble between people is the source of much logical confusion.
so, we have that going for us.
