Is belief in
the sentiment of love & of
a contradiction between
singular & universal:
must one sacrifice the other
is the distinction no more than
a mistaken understanding?
To what extent
are the things that we say & do
beyond our control?
the choice to say “No”
is always present,
profound dependency upon others*,
how can biological compulsion
override the tide of cause & effect:
how can the immaterial
change the course of material consequence?
& do these simple questions
we are forced to exist.
* Simone de Beauvoir – Pyrrhus and Cinéas
