  • Ignorance

    We truly know nothing
    The universe remains
    Beyond understanding
    We go about our daily
    Lives as if those fictions
    Will protect us and prove
    A comforting distraction

    But in the dark quiet when
    Alone in your profound
    Nakedness you pray that
    The journey you make on
    Behalf of those in your care
    And the proffered umbrella
    Will weather uncertainty

    True, true, Tanner. A question I always have on this subject: If the illusion of hope actually helps to keep us psychologically functional in the face of vast imponderables and abysses of unmeaning, is it really an illusion? If it is a trick of our chemistry to keep us 'going', is it really a trick? Existence has furnished us with this faculty. Could the ineffable universe be conniving at its own unmasking?
