a friend’s brother, kelly kreye
you know in new york people start out with ‘no’ -
“it’s a beautiful day”
and they say
“no… i mean, yeah you’re right it is”
try that in the south and you’ll get
yeses all the way down
before the smallest speck of disagreement begins to emerge.
is it because
we look for similes
ways to say this looks, feels, tastes and seems like something i know
something i’ve seen before…?
what about difference?
what about thinking
not the no of new york
nor the yes of the south
but without yes and without no
just about the taste, the object, the idea in question
and seeing it for something on it’s own.
at least for the moment?
what might we see then?
