notebook poem (and a collage)

notebook series-11

Why can we not be perfectly clear, even Nixonian in our perfect clarity?

 

First, it is because one must be clear to oneself before one can be clear to others. (The computer emits arcane medieval noises.)

 

Second, one must think clearly in order to be clear to oneself, and hence to others.

 

Third, the means of achieving clarity are unclear.

 

So even in the simplest of circumstances, muddy thought muddies one’s thoughts.
