another chain of words that spoke to me

"... and now for something completely different ..."

the arrival cycle

we wake in deep shadow
we wake from a dream
a space of murky foolishness
where the worst of all we share

where we devolve
and erode
and abandon free will
independent thought 
and action

where homogeny hungers
for all of it
for all of us
with fearless fear
and insatiable avarice

where we meet 
the dark consequences for failing to standardize the Self
the dark consequences for wearing the mantle of the Misfit
the dark consequences for speaking a Truth
the dark consequences of Compassion


Shadow Dream exhales
and leaves us in The Long View
witnessing the small things
flecks of personal concern
dust specks on The Bigger Picture

we scold ourselves for feeding the trite
for inviting distraction that derails
for mirroring and mimicking the verve we loathe 
oh, to be human
oh, to forgive

and we pull the verve back
back to our core
to the heartflame
where the remedy resides
flickers and waits
