He traced the paradox

through the rocks

     of ages

a step at a time

to every stepping stone

 

A Man in profuse 

delusion

a conquerer

   who runs

      only when rarely

          conquered

announed to himself

      "I shall conquer confusion"

And with a hefty sigh

      and his sword raised towards

      announced in argument

 "In every aspect and corner

    of every part of the world 

       you finding posing  for it's portrait

          Nothing else

         but the chicken with his egg

      the egg with his chick

        in a busy activity

            quarreling.

 

    Truth is truth

                 the picture

                was already present

                   afore 

         a world order  

         and

        but made the energy

          composed the fiber of the brushes

              move

                 along the canvass

                      moved to life the same

an cause our conquering dualer

     delcare

        "its' made of

        chicken and eggs

         starved

          for

              order"

          'champ'

                he bellowed melodically

      "we'd all been only hungary

       to think there's more 

        on the table

           than the time back

             and taxed

             we all spent

           catching the chicken

            cooking the egg

               afore we got hungry again

                try an get em both

                   do it all in advance

                                 for us".

I have/had to smile, Eli. I think the chicken came first, also, but he was a she. The egg's been cooked, to death, what about the opposite? Sperm? I think it has to be... Hungry? I think so... Always.

If other was what we saw, what would what we see be?
