two monostichs and three philosophical statements by Matt Taggart

What’s pain until it’s in your head.



I stopped calling this anxiety and relaxed into life.



Sometimes the world crumbles and forces us to watch.



I think logic has gone the long way around.



I think the fractured peoples of this world have become the most intelligent, having created their own rules, inviting normalcy to be gone.



I like to read. I like to write. I love my wife, our young son, and my life.

Cheers. -M. Taggart
