Profound Revelations

by Chris Sorrenti


one cannot fully appreciate order
until having lived through disorder


a platonic relationship is like mashed potatoes
with butter and salt but no gravy


the grass may be greener on the other side of the fence
but eventually it has to be mowed too


violence is the real pornography


in this world we own nothing
only possess things for periods of time


apart from rules and regulations cast in law
everything else is arbitrary
though one can arbitrarily choose to ignore the law

...all true, all too true...ponderous reminders, I appreciate your maxims here muchly. Here's another revelation, concerning revelations and their edicts: Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger. To me that means, let improvisation and eclecticism rock forever. Thanks.

Quite profound,Chris.....as well as true. I enjoyed reading your poetical clarifications of profound metaphorical revelations...thanks for sharing.

Memorable Chrisisms!

What is profound is the life well-lived and well-examined from which these revelations proceed. I am in a pool of gratitude of that life. Thanks for the wisdom. Thanks for hanging in there so long - and for hanging out here.
