CONVERSATION ON A TURTLE'S BACK

You assure me,
merely expiating 
one's default settings
alleviates suffering,

and that sheer
disbelief 
is a lot less tenable
than uncertainty.

Then you say, it's simple,
from now on, you'll only be
saying prayers for 
money. And how I ought to

do myself a favor—
just forget about 
whole world and consider 
all its feelings.

For something to endure, 
you hasten 
to add, it needs to move slow 
and be boring.

Finally, you like 
to remind me: in the 
Scheme of Things, 
none of this even matters.

But there—I can already 
hear your mistake: 
Things, okay 
sure. But what—Scheme?
