Poem for July 17

Auguries of Contradiction
how can a thought that does not exist not exist, can not exist, responding to a question?
If not exist, where’s the question provoking it then…
The eye must hear its contradictions and see through itself — in an act of freedom.
As the parrot in my room talks to me, affectionless
Questions and answers are mirrors reflecting each other’s emptiness
where the eye travels.
– Murat Nemet-Nejat, from The Spiritual Life of Replicants (Talisman House, 2011)
