FACTUALITY

FACTUALITY
Ivan Jenson

Experience itself
is thick headed
and thoughtless as
the bronze Thinker
events
are simply
flux and stimuli
which surround
and confound you
and often corners you
like a lover or bully
both seeking to
smooch or smack you
the string theory is
just some physicists
trying to straighten
your ties to
reality
into knots
and Einstein was
a relatively
advanced
species drawing
stick figures
with chalk
across the bored
minds of the masses
facts and figures
are only as true
as an unfaithful
woman
and the secret things
she does
under the surface
of her pretty face value
are better left unknown

  1. Another quilt of philosophical ideas from Ivan. It’s the last of his current batch of subs.

  2. I like it; the ironically resigned – having been ravaged and beaten for far too long – with perspective just-enough for a smirk of compassion
