Who knows the way it goes
as the globe spins?
Who killed Kennedy?
Who Dr. King?
Did we land on the moon?
Why’d Lennon have to go so soon?
Who knows what my dad did in his youth?
He ain’t talkin’.
is God is or is god ain’t?
When I contemplate zen koans
I feel as if nothing is known:
Hair on teeth
What’s this thang there everybody’s talkin’ about,
some kinda trip or something folks are going on
in their own heads?
There’s too many people on meds these days.
Why don’t they just drink whiskey?
Like Mammaw always said
it’s hard tellin’, not knowin’.
