Barking Dog says... a poem, too, is a Thing among things, what it is remains hidden. Withdrawn. The hidden life of Things cannot be owned.
Barking Dog says... what one reads is always a trace, which is another Thing. There is no end to the labyrinth of Being.
Barking Dog says... no one has ever found the Minotaur. No one ever will.
Barking Dog says... Jack went to Market with the World, and traded it for a hologram called 'reality.'
Good reason why the young reject the wisdom of the old. They know intuitively that there's no shortcuts: wisdom grows out of the accumulation of one's mistakes, so it's always retroactive.

Barking Dog says... elections don't drive change, change drives elections. Become a movement of one in a movement of three in a movement of ten to seed a movement of millions.
