598 I Refuse 5-15-16 (go to 580 for word search)

Pardon, Poppa,
but I cannot surrender
to la Nada.
That I live in a
clean, well lighted place,
with a warm woman
and a full larder
has no baring on
acquiescence to a
hopeful “despues”.
It is neither easier
nor harder to have
faith in the coming
of “un algo”,
an after, after,
than to bow
to despair and
the business end
of a loaded shotgun.
And, skepticism needing
to be honest enough
to turn itself on itself,
if it is La Nada,
I will never know.
But,
Si es Algo,
que feliz!
