Reinstating Sanity by introducing silence



In Memory: Ludwig Wittgenstein

a thinking silhouette
that probing scalpel
once a man

Infiltrating the statement
of truth

violating it by glaring
Inference

found wanted

between intruding walls
and gossiping kitchen floors

he solved all philosophical
problems

he never went to sleep again

deciphering the time between
every click of the ding dong clock

looking at time…analyzing
knowing his crime…calculating the odds

cursing the uncommon predicament

that a table has five legs

the freakish conclusion hopping towards
the master…

taking a fearsome corner and saying
and saving himself

that what cannot be said must be left in silence
