Apocataphatically speaking . . .

February 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Better not to speak of the unspeakable
except what you are unfathomably not

unthought of

I begin to think
but the mere thought of you
initiates an explosion that exceeds
my capacity to contain

You, non-construct of my feeble attempt
make yourself known without words
leaving me exasperated
without tears left to shed

why do you invite me
to the abundance of your poverty
to the plurality of your simplicity
do you envelop me in a knowing
that crushes my mental faculties?

I can barely verbalize the experience
the words come stammering
haltering even to describe what it was not

How do I bear this unknowable knowing
this weight of your unspeakable speech-act?

Oh my goodness
Oh my not-badness
Oh my God

I have no words for you
I better shut up!
