Magical Thinking

The cat considers Schrödinger…

Abandon the sensuous particular.
Life is not a box of nails.
Speculate generously on abstractions.
There are things beyond things.
Why only whisper in a voice of thunder?
More important matters are at hand.
Think bigger than red wheelbarrows.
Make multitudes of yourself.
Find succor in the surreal.
Sing songs suffused with possibilities.
Assume cigars are more than that.
Know more than you know you know.
A poem is not merely a hammer.
A human is more than a glob of cells.
 Flip the hidden light switch of why.
 Question the answers before you die.
