Fate can be turned around

Romeo arrived on time
So did Giulia
Lives were saved &
They lived happily
Ever after &
The relatives were told
To go to hell

Author’s note
I’ve always preferred comedy to tragedy, including Shakespeare.  So why not turn one into the other?

My precarious existence

I’m relying entirely on the fact that my computer remembers all my various passwords.

“So you believe in reincarnation? – What if you’re wrong?”

“It won’t matter. I’ll only find out when I’m dead.”

The tip of the anthill

(thinking of Srebrenica and two late 20th century monsters – Karadžić and Mladić)

are always
at the tip
but the tip is

without the masses below
the faithful and fanatic executioners
reaching down into the ugly subterranean subconscious

without the international bystanders

You exist

You exist

Your place is
where eyes look at you.
Where eyes meet
you come into being.

Held by a call,
always the same voice,
everyone appears to be calling
in one voice.

You could fall,
but you won’t.
Eyes catch you.

You exist
because eyes want you,
look at you and say
that you exist.

Hilde Domin (1909-2006)

You may not like some of the moves

God is the greatest chess master of them all. He plays for all parties. The chessboard is the universe, the figures are zillions and every move is precisely precalculated using all the variables.
