I ask questions because

I want to know things.
Silly. I know that,
Why not know a dream?

I want to understand.
Don’t you?
Don’t you want to know what and how and why?


I want to find things out.
An explorer, cutting back swathes of rainforest
Clearing a path.

People who don’t want to know anything scare me.
What else can they want?
Real understanding is breathing fire.

This is not a love story,
More like the human condition.
Knowledge isn’t power.

It’s peace.

I just want to know things.
Lots of things.
Maybe everything.

And why not?
