there’s no there there – July 13


there’s no there there

he said.

the latest reports from the

latest gathering of the

latest hot shots. all fluff

little thought, depth of

inches scant. at least that’s

how he sees the slant.


God keeps down the noise

of the self important.

while real people go about

believing and doing

and acting out their faith,

others mouth platitudes that say

hooray for me.


there is an arrogance to

progress that believes its

own press notices. until some

one notices that there is no

there there.
