Despairing of God
I went to the desert
to seek my own saint.

“Does it matter whether one is required to complete the work
or whether one is free to desist from the work
if you must meet a final art that certainly you did not make?”

*****

“Philosophical problems are conceptual confusions
that arise when a form of utterance appropriate
to one mode of discourse is mistakenly used in the wrong context
Confusions must be unpicked employing ordinary uses of language.”

Standing tall in death
facing tomorrows and
what they may bring
knowing each will change
how we see yesterday
and how we adjust
to the present — nothing
remains the same.

This large grayish brown bird is a common woodpecker of the Sonoran Desert.
They nest in holes in giant saguaro cactus.
