on that soul-bludgeoning cusp
between the object and subject
material and mind

What is the date exactly?
i'm not/never/ever sure
about this that or another
and whenever I think I am
therefore i am not
-then reality sneaks up on me
ever so stealthily-

-I exist liminally
-i am a project for Marx and Lacan
but mostly I am a project for me
-and i ponder and peruse I
wonder and wish
until I don't know
about me or you or them
and even nihlism makes sense

that's about the nature of that
God-[rules is rules guys - just live with it]saving cusp

that was interesting, i liked the contradictory word play you used. your rhythm is interesting, in that it seems to correlate directly w/your thinking process. the points you're debating could be shattered into so many more pieces of writing. i like.
