Known is Unfortunate

There is an opposition to knowledge
grown at the edge of the garden:
weeds are a product of perfectionists
because without wrong
there can be no ideal

Shame is one no away
from being an apple snake pit
guilt by the face of a deified
who will torture those who obey
and prosecute the innocent
with a divinely hidden smile

If bookishness is hiding in other people's heads
my intentions are spied
and proclamations 
derive from these missions
to the center of another intellect
stealing the sight
from every eye
and turning my spoon
to scoop the sound
from each drum

Gathering too much leads to confusion,
of course,
when things are all around
there is no outside
a wall 
of everything
denies the possibility 
in anything
