how (not) to talk about God


(Kazmir Malevitch, White on White, 1918)

After 24 years:

MK: So, let me ask you something…

ME: …Yeah

MK: Do you believe in God?

ME: …Yeah

MK: Yeah? So, then why are you shaking your head no?

ME: Ha

MK: Yeah, that’s how I feel

how (not) to talk about God:

verbal assertion + gestural negation

The less said, the better

without punctuation
