He Does Not Live In Calendars

He does not live in calendars.

He does not live in clocks.

He does not live in a dictionary.

He does not redefine the unknown

in terms of the known

because he knows

with understanding

comes the loss

of the pre-understood.

 

He does not live in a continuous clock.

He lives on a discrete number line, jumping

from one rung to another, skipping

the in-between space.

His hour, minute, and second hands don’t move.

They simply disappear and reappear in new

locations

every second,

minute,

hour.

 

His present is not the sum of his pasts.

His presence is not the sum of his parts.

He does not live in a tautological dictionary

where every term equals itself and the other

terms that equal it.

He lives in a book where nothing equals itself,

where nothing equals anything, and everything

equals nothing

and nothing does not equal nothing

and zero is the largest of numbers

and zero is a black hole

and zero sucks in everything.

 

He does not live in calendars. He does not live

in clocks.

Between each of his motions,

while zero seconds pass,

the universe is created again.

All his years are zero,

all his meetings are introductions,

and he does not live in these words.

Try to fit him in a dictionary,

and he will create a new language.

One thought on “He Does Not Live In Calendars

  1. A truly mysterious being whose existence defies forces of nature. He could also be anybody who has chosen to live his life at variance to what the people of the world know but according to his own defination. Anybody who choses to live this way, has chosen to live a life of true greatness and a life of all round success.
