Time Koan

Without the heavens
there are no stars.
Without stars,
without sun,
without moon,
what time is it?



To be famous,
a “Somebody” in the public’s minds
coin easily squandered,
a fiction time forgets.Infamy, however, is

like that piece of toilet paper
stuck on the sole of your shoe,
which trails after you
as you leave a public restroom.


Sense and Probability
(after Plato)

The world as created,
is apprehended by our senses.
Fashioned after the eternal pattern;
an eternal pattern can be
spoken of with certainty.
The created copy can only be described
in the language of probability.



Richard Gartee, Gainsville, Florida
