Some Things Always Make Me Feel Better

pity this busy monster,manunkind,

not. Progress is a comfortable disease:
your victime(death and life safely beyond)

plays with the bigness of his littleness
--electrons deify one razorblade
into a mountainrange;lenses extend

unwish through curving wherewhen till unwish
returns on its unself.
A world of made
is not a world of born-pity poor flesh

and tress,poor stars and stones,but never this
fine specimen of hypermagical
ultraomnipotence. We doctors know

a hopeless case if-listen;there's a hell
of a good universe next door;let's go

-e.e. cummings

'plays with the bigness of his littleness' is going to be my phrase for the week.
