The Poetry of
Jack Scott

Truth is not a Konstant.

All Konstants contain Variables
because Konstants are so All.
Variables are ingredients
of the largest recipes.
Variables are wobbles in all transit,
bubbles in the simmering stew,
ergo: Konstants are evolving
the same as all surrounding them,
from what they once were
toward what they’re bound to be.

The search for Truth
is the pursuit
of receding light
traveling from us faster
than we can follow
with the earthbound smugness
of our certainty.
