Frivolity as Precursor of Gravity

In a world where there is an endless supply of words and cleverness
In a world where there is insincerity and plastic in abundance

We grow a deep desire for silence
We develop an aversion to pseudo depth

And so

Silliness and stupidity becomes unlikely guardians
Against good words devoid of context and
against sound advice bereft of story.

Frivolous nonsense
Insignificant shallowness
Teasing disdain and
mocking deconstruction

becomes
space fillers to prevent infuriating rhetoric

becomes
desperate cries longing for authenticity

desires
grounded presence

despises
self-indulgent words

so
lets get shallow to preserve the depth
lets go ordinary to protect the extra-ordinary
and lets be silly to avoid the tainting of the only good words we know.
