It has been said that “happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

& as my brother Mark notes: “New Yorkers don’t wait for trains, they watch for them.”

Green

Green as a quiet chaos lying in verdant beginnings,
The freest state you can be in.

Not the violence but the unorganized circumstance.
Biological and birthing,
Articulate whisperer of promise.

The last few pages of The Great Gatsby:
All green.

A convincingly passive color
To quiet a turmoil or contrast other levels,
An energy contradictory in quixotic abundance.

The Chiaroscuro and Venetian schools
Avoided green and had no green in their palette.

The overall effect is Green.

It is asking it,
Complementary,
Next to it.

If it is not green it is glazing dark umber
Into green effect.

A consequence
Of glazing reds & ochre
Into shades of vicinity insatiate.

Perhaps that’s part of the mystery and magic of writing … that you can’t encompass it in any kind of definition or aphorism … or do anything but shake your head and strike your breast. It’s beyond me, but thank God, I’m mixed up with it.

“I get really angry when someone says they don’t read fiction because it’s all made up and ‘not real.’ Bullshit! Nothing is more real than fiction. Nothing helps us make sense of the real world more than fiction. Nothing instills in us empathy for others like fiction. As David Foster Wallace said, ‘Fiction is what it is to be a fucking human being.’ That’s my favorite quote of all time, because nothing more true has ever been said.”

We couldn’t agree more.
