Spiritual

Have you heard 
the modern philosopher's least favorite word?

Religion, alchemy, even astrology
meet with half a smile
for these are frameworks in which structure
can take one at least a mile.

But this vaguest plan of life
meets with any mode or knife
cutting paper willy nilly
gutting scraper chilly frilly.

Contradictions are for sure
but hypocrites be mighty cured
hams that hang by any phrase
lying down deny the maze.

Surely there is room for this
language fails to win a kiss
for a mouth just wants to love
spirit door a thoughtless shove.
