Haiku Tag

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

to be physical
or not to be physical
that is the question
The purpose of my life would seem to be to express the truth as I discover it, but in such a manner that it is completely devoid of authority. By having no authority, by being seen by all as utterly unreliable, I express the truth and put everyone in a contradictory position where they can only save themselves by making the truth their own.

That is the question,
But does it have an answer,
Another question?

(Don [-X ) Quixote hit that
episodic chaos sought
in a woman's eyes

EDIT: hmm, then again, is it Key-hoe-tay or Key-haute? Maybe that Don does belong, krossie... I know it's quick-saw-tic, but but maybe not so much so with the proper name. :-k
