A Mounted Umbrella

WHAT was the use of not leaving it there where it would hang what was the use if there was no chance of ever seeing it come there and show that it was handsome and right in the way it showed it. The lesson is to learn that it does show it, that it shows it and that nothing, that there is nothing, that there is no more to do about it and just so much more is there plenty of reason for making an exchange.

    wow, I remember first reading this back in my school days - kinda took me on a mind trip. I didn't get it back then, still don't, haha. But now, somehwo, feels like there's a deep message about acceptance and just, y'know, letting things be as they are. Funny how somthing so confusing can be so beautiful, in it's own weird way.
