Paperback Philosophy

my muse is overdressed and leaning against the wall
with a look of reserved detachment bordering on impatience
the overwhelming urge to follow in order to learn
leads me to various situations
I like to think that my eyes are wide open and my thoughts are clear
but we rely on assumption piled high on hope
my muse pays very little attention to my questions
and I believe that this indifference is the whole of the answer
my muse has a strong disregard for analogies
connections are dangerous were the words my muse used
meaning is found separate everywhere you look
a strong sense of implication is unreliable and suspect
there are no gut feelings, for yesterdays path will vary
reach all you want seems to be a large part of the muse business
