ANXIETY (a chant)To Jonathan Penton's previous piece     Growing OldTo Jonathan Penton's next piece

Better that we not
try to make a connection;
we were surviving just fine without.
Better that we deal with our limited perspectives
than open the floodgates of inadequacy that communication

Salmon connect, but they die for their efforts;
better to live with a shallow horizon
than become lost
in the landscape
of the beauty of others.
