7729. AXIOM

'Let no other man handle what your
own will not do'. I read this once,
in a screaming sort of way, on 
something pasted or written. It was,
perhaps, a fortune cookie, or one of 
those things you get for a nickel in 
a gumball machine. I so took it to 
heart, though I never quite understood.
It had a delicious and vague meaning;
the sort of thing you misunderstand
as deep. Then there were the loose and
the heavenly skies to contend with as
well. Walking away, I remember stuffing 
it  -  the little slip of paper  -  in my shirt
pocket, carefully folded first, but still being
most completely confused by the meaning.
