Conversational Choices [Philosophy

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Uncategorized

Religion is a subject
I avoid in conversation
After all, it’s the ‘Bible Belt’
And each client has relations

Some things I share in common
Perhaps it is the same (*1)
Seen as myth or superstition
That is lodged inside my brain

Experiences find expression
In my sometimes-endless chatter
How we magnetize events
As a metaphysical matter

Some phrases I avoid
Intimidation seems to bring
With language that’s obscure
Cause it’s ‘AIN’T’ that most seem cling (*2)



(*1) Perhaps, when I speak of quantum physics or quantum entanglement or
the various things that attempt to explain how we collectively have created
the tangled mess we’re living in, maybe the people I’m speaking with see my
perspective as myth superstition or conspiracy. Not sure, most of the time
when I get that deep their eyes go vacant, it’s obvious my words have vague
meaning. I’d leant a CD to an Italian client at my first shop, he said he
was listening when he finally realized he’d pulled onto the shoulder to
keep from being distracted by driving. But, as he related the event, he
said, I recognized the words, they were English, but I didn’t have a clue
what you’d said. It was a very funny window to view my work through.

(*2) Here I think I’m just poking fun at those I serve. ‘Ain’t’ is a
common phrase that seems to run through most of my client base. Almost
like it was indoctrinated the same way saying, ‘Yes Mam/No Mam, Yes Sir/No
Sir’ is branded into the brains of the ‘littles.’ It is honored here as
the highest form of respect, regardless of the attitude or nature behind it.

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
