but deprives another
whose authentic self
is most compatible with those gains.

The Last Titan[an excerpt from The Last Titan]


“So if Chiron only has two legs,” Trademark asks, “why did people think he was a centaur?”

I am one of them
And so are you
So let’s just praise the Lord.

I’ve never really liked this song, though, admittedly, I never heard it until I was an adult.

NOT HOW I REMEMBER THEM​ Mary had a little pig,
She kept it fat and plastered;
And when the price of pork went up,
She shot the little bastard.

Her father shot it dead.
Now it goes to school with her,
Between two hunks of bread.

We all begin in what we end
since from the Garden we did wend
and traded pineapples for thorn
and turned God's care for us to scorn.

Sad, isn't it, this morbid turn
from Paradise, from man to worm.
From clay to clay, and dust to dust
we drearily pursue our Must.
