Month: January 2014


Pragmatism must be inherited,

it cannot be taught.

It is neither extreme enough,

nor radical in its expression

to be indoctrinated.

I have earned

my pragmatism the hard way:


Belief is never enough,

you must show effect,

and show it repeatedly;

anything else

is emotional dogma.


They pile up

like leaves

or mail,

after a vacation….

Things to be done.

There is no sword,

or arrow,

or bolt of light

that can fade them.

They will be there,


and still un-done.
