Love Rollercoaster

I know something’s wrong with my thinking.  I just can’t tell exactly what it is since I am, of course, inside my thinking. ~ Louise Erdrich

I am rooting out that reductionist

thinking, that trusted inveigled

school-coached mathematical model

that completely ignores the sum

is greater than its parts.

The idea that I can look at anything

without our connection creating

an intertwined us.  That there is an

other.  I thought after five cycles

spinning through the Chinese symbols

I would have gained

some advantage, even though

I daily converse with people

far older than me and I see

that life is a messy

rollercoaster ride from birth

til death and I hope that someone

nearby is sane when I go off

the deep end.

Reality is reversible;

I can show my inner lining

even though it hurts because

we make it together:

Take turns, give notes,

study form and technique

and never


aspire to perfection.
