A kind of census. The
mind’s mosaic has been
taken in for introspection.
Why learn for the sake
of learning? Unnecessary
facts might just as well
be fiction for all the use
we get from them. The
fragments are taken out
for sensual inspection,
left so the air can
breathe on them. Those
that acquire color are kept
to form the new pathways
of the mind. The bland
are used to pebble
pathways in the garden.

Mark Young’s most recent books are Bandicoot habitat & lithic typology, both from gradient books of Finland. An e-book, For the Witches of Romania, is due out from Beard of Bees.
