A Constructionist Theory of Literature


You are more than a fossil –
so stay far away from all absinthe.

To analyse discourse rationally
something better than formaldehyde is needed.

The dead are all around us –
libraries are noted as intellectual cemeteries.

The key is to keep moving
& find a quiet point inside

When you find that,
open your senses
& don't let theories straight-jacket
what is perceived!

Reading is a sort of magic
& it's worth remembering –
errors are seldom as they first appear:
often they are doors to discoveries
that open greater spheres.
