Rigidities Of Quidities

hammer and naul


To cause effect,

Select, direct a consequence

Out of inevitabilities

Requires, one might think,

Quantities of mind agilities.

But, the mental frame suspects,

Temporal rigidities elects

That choice from out that central voice

Is neither plastic nor elastic

Where cause has steel bindings to effects.


When the hammer hits the nail

The spike cannot choose to resist.

The equations for persuasions command

Penetrations out of fixed solidities.

Choice is not an issue. Time obliges

All results. There is no this or that to disagree.

The mind must mind. It is not free.
