Limits of Explanation

Four Views of men sitting, Eugène Delacroix

I thought about it all
& I thought about the lot

along four dimensions,
from as high as I could get

first I’d come at it from one way,
& then I’d recoil,
traverse its breadth from another

again & again,
& again & again

eventually I came to,
stopped senselessly searching sense

but far from giving up as such,
I learned to sit instead.
