Know-all: Senryu


“I don’t know,” she said.
Wisest thing she’d said all night
And quite a surprise.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I like to play the game “I don’t know”.
    Come up with answers for why people do things,
    Myself included.
    See how close I can get to the truth
    When the truth eventually frees itself
    From the confines of the illusion.
    And I find myself in a state of wrong,
    of course the answer will always be “I should have known.”

    • So much guesswork paraded as truth is merely a fictional cloak to keep fear and ignorance at bay. Worse than that it is used as a way to muzzle the Actual Truth.


  2. I’m chuckling … could be someone I know … she likely the most surprised to hear this come out out-loud!
