The Course Traveled

I notice, my friend, that you have directed the conversation, begun a precedent. We follow you and the contours of what you have said. It defines our words and it regulates our discussion as a result. Yet, you are not there; you have nothing; you say nothing; you do nothing. You are nothing. So, absence sets precedent for those of us who see nothing for what it is. Perhaps nothing then acts in a way - through the limits and outline through the ceasing that begins - upon the things that are supposedly "there." One must remember that these things are-not. They have no place where they must begin, these words. They lead through themselves what were already present in the form of something else. Nevertheless, the conversation has started, and we have a direction. Nothing can stop the course we are now traveling.
