In Praise Of Primitive Societies

All societies are consumer societies,
the more they consume
the more they dream of further consumption
and after having temporarily finished consuming
all they have are their dreams
as pale reflections that will be lost
of the vibrant life that there once was.

The more we mine our unconscious
through drugs alcohol and entertainment
the more infinite the seam of greed
that we collectively live by.

Even the best of the outsiders to all this
can never get far enough outside of it
to both survive
and be in balance with their environment.

Youthful Attentiveness

Though how much those who stop learning may well
 feel old for the static life they have is not mine to comment on.

Fear And Fiction

stalk all of human life,
devouring who they may.

Disbelieve them
where you can
if you want to stay.

Connection, Speech, and Gender

The telephone was invented by a man,
and from the candle stick of the 1920's
to modern times so many of the appliances
into which we have to speak into
have been firm and somewhat phallic.

The lead in their pencils makes men
always want take the lead in life,
unaware of how this makes them controlling,
and this include the design of technologies
to assist future communications.

Were women to take a greater hand
in our collective designs for future living
I wonder how much more feminine,
sensual and inclusive the shapes
of their designs for sharing speech
at a distance in future might be.

Would talking into differently designed phones
more naturally suggest everyday cunnilingus?

Maturity Is Always Relative

Sometimes maturity requires us
to live apart from others,
particularly our families,
the better to be clearer
about the nature of our vice.

Through separation
we can resist the charms of co-habitation
and refine ourselves into something nicer.
