If you’re looking for the message in a matrix, you’ve turned a bum corner, he said, warming his hands over the fire licking out of an old drum, I ain’t Bishop Berkeley

“If God came down right now and gave you an eternity to describe the world where would you begin?”

Don’t give me Zeno’s arrow or the old bald/hairy, he said, tying the string tighter round his narrowing waistline, everything describes itself perfectly, why bother, some old biddy all ready did.

“Are rhetorical questions always stylistic errors?”

Well, now you’re just repeating youself, you already askeded me that one before, he said, spitting into the fire then adjusting his illfitting false teeth, no more saxophone for me.

  1. Oh I like this. The reflection on the connection maybe. Your writing flies, Paul. Your voice is so brilliantly adaptable and yes, magic on the page, dancing riddles.

  2. to be is to be perceived……today I am on his side. Great piece as always, Paul.

  3. good stuff in just a few words–wonderful characters

  4. 🙂

  5. So if motion is an illusion, then paradox becomes a self-serving standard? I love your characters and their unsavory habits…

  6. jeeze, the bums around these parts speak far less elequently than this. there discussions of being and nothingness tend to lean more to cigeretts, liquer and free food.

  7. Thanks for the link, that was an interesting site.

  8. “Everything describes itself perfectly”…..what else is needed after that.
