As I reflected on this little exchange, I indeed experienced a clarifying moment, and in that moment I realized that I am ready to be issued my white robe, take up the standard sign that says "THE END IS NEAR," head for the nearest high traffic street corner, and become a living cartoon. (My stepdaughter suggested a sign inscribed "GOD IS A SOCK," but while that appealed to my inner absurdist, it's not nearly apocalyptic enough.) The clarified fact is that I believe, down to my hindbrain, that it's too late for the human race to save itself, from several fates most of the fat-headed arrogant hominids that comprise the citizenry of this country would consider worse than death, which works out because death is what a lot of them will get, a lot sooner than they think, when they bother to think, may the God I don't believe in fuck them all. I guess you could say I'm still a bit peeved about it. Jeremiads `R' Us.
A FLARF POEM COMPOSED FROM A GOOGLE OF "CLARIFYING MOMENT"
The war is a tragedy for its victims,
but it could also be a clarifying moment
if the world draws the proper lessons...
But if we are in a state
of perpetual self-development,
of endless becoming,
then perhaps there is never
a clean moment of arrival,
or a clarifying moment.
But in reality,
a clarifying moment
The patriotic tensions
generated by war and recession
spawned a "rare clarifying moment"
or some other kind of turning point--
to no longer "manage calm"
but instead to become a revolutionary force
and to permit violence to become a clarifying moment
and its aftermath as a clarifying moment
taught a sharp lesson, to me, it was a clarifying moment
on the dishonesty of identity politics,
on the identity of dishonesty politics.
In a clarifying moment
of insight approaching epiphany,
I now see that we can't realize a clarifying moment
as a clarifying moment should be realized.
Dear Leader longs for a return of the clarifying moment.
Political compounds can cause turbidity
and reduce clarity in sparkling beverages.
When a Christian departs
from a gospel of love and forgiveness
to advocate murder,
his example provides
a clarifying moment
for anyone. You'd think.
