My friend Jim wrote a post on Immanuel Kant that actually inspired me to try my hand at writing a poem... which let's just say doesn't happen often haha. Here it is:

fundamental nature, sensuous cognition
the things we intuit are not our intuition

they are not as they appear
take away our senses
and space and time disappear

they cannot exist in themselves,
but only in us

our own mode of intuition,
our sensibility,

but not one step nearer
to knowing the things

you see
given space and time
it’s not that we don’t know
it’s that we kant

And now I have this song in my head:
