an exercise in doubt

the man who exists is infinitely interested in existing.

Miguel de Unamuno, The Tragic Sense of Life

if no word is worth its weight in silence,
why should i waste any on the stillness
of this wicked chamber, let alone trifles
like prescribed daily exercises in doubt
over its provisional soul?
