To Aristotle

Philosopher, you cannot know
the lengths that we have gone to.
From your home in our lungs,
our lashes, the clouds, the spiders,
the ever-bleeding maples,
it all must seem easy,
like breathing.

In any case, it's nice to have your poetry back.

Probably unnecessary lengths we have gone to...things are as hard as we make them, they say.

Leslie: You've got a point, there. I just look around and see computers, job applications, vending machines, and think, he never could have anticipated this.
