I'm constantly wrong, basically any time you see something I've said it's wrong

and this all leads to, chichéd, yes, but useful markers along the road like "I only know that I know nothing" and "Zen mind, beginner's mind" and "assume good faith" and the like

but luckily it’s too early to go to the movies
and all the museums are closed on Tuesday
anyway I’d rather be here with you
than in New York or possibly Amsterdam
with our eyes and lips and legs and bellies
and the sun as big as a house in the sky
and five minutes left before the world begins

with your black hair and gold skin
leaning against the white wall
a perfect slant of sunlight slashed
across your chest as if God
were Rembrandt or maybe Ingmar Bergman
