post-thought, 7th January 2017

I wonder where that last thought goes…… the last thought you ever have, or will ever have…… not into memory as most other thoughts do surely, considering that’ll be gone when you die…. unless your memory goes somewhere, but where?……. and will the last thought slip in just in time before it leaves?……… and what are those last thoughts?….. we’ll never know that very last momentary thought that passes just before……. you’d hope it would be a good one at least, the best one you’ve ever had perhaps…….

sadly though you won’t be able to do anything about it…… unless there’s nothing to be done with it and as a thought merely stands on its own…. and then it’s an orphan, an orphan-thought……. do thoughts need people to exist, and do they need that very thinker of that thought once the thoughts been thought?……. a lot to think about on only day 7 of the new year……

on the precipice of what I predict will be an even stranger year than the last….. last year was just downright depressing, frustrating, skin-clawing……. this one will be truly bizarre, a veritable bazaar of the weird and the worrying……… a year in which bare-face lies have been given credence under the politically-motivated term of ‘post-truth’, which is simply lying……. but the more it’s said the more it gains traction as a force unto itself welding itself to the public psyche, itself as a fact, even though it eschews and openly denies the validity of ‘facts‘ in saying “people are tired of the facts”…. which isn’t true, we aren’t, but if you say it enough it becomes a ‘truth‘, the epitome of a post-truth…… clever stuff…………

what a depressing last thought that’d be…….
