Advocates


 gb

Allan Ginsberg’s Howl, William Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and, Paul Goodman a novelist,playwriter and social activist; all advocates and adventurous men of original literary acclaim to the avant-garde, rebels in and of their time, garnering unsolicited reputation for challenging the buttressed and stalwart, civil-conservative institution of literature and civil-society at large; these great, inspirational authors and each provocatures of past little known, unfortunately, by many contemporary authors and public.

The ironic thread that strings these three men in particular, is not limited to their willingness to trash contemporary style, form and theme, the hallmarks of accepted and flourishing literature of their time but, their sexuality.  Both Goodman and Burroughs were bi-sexual and Ginsberg, homosexual.

So what relevance does sexual-orientation have for their works being recognized as profound and revolutionary contributions to the literary realm given at times, the shocking crudeness and vulgarity of language describing in vile and gutteral detail, perceived deviant sexuality, heroin addiction and smoking of pot expressed in wildly random, convoluted style and form contrary to the conservative and conventional literary publications in and of their time?

Though to a considerably lesser extent today given current human and equal-rights legislative reforms; during the life-time of these men homosexuals and bisexual were heavily persecuted, deemed tarnished reprobate, sick people and legally classified as mentally ill and, subject to arrest if caught or reported performing sexual acts with other men often relegated to secrecy and  cover of darkness.

It is no wonder given the harshness of the social environment imposed on these men and others of their era,  would resort to free-form expression to expunge the hatred and hostility they all were grudgingly obliged to endure.

NATURE’S SEED


gmo

Parlaying scientific understanding to Nature’s natural birth

Through genetic modification of Seed put to Earth

A wondrous gift given generations of humankind

A gift with potential to be lost for all future time

Humanity is at the threshold to agri-food-corp enslavement

A global phenomenon that seems beyond containment

Impudent, purchased government blindly legislate the prevailing condition

Ignoring the public outcry to deny proliferation and permission

Those to whom greed of wealth arises from this abomination

Deem themselves beyond all natural and legislated laws of Nations

Emboldened with knowledge their food source will always be natural and safe

The potential death of the greater population hinders not its implementation pace

Passage of time will render truth to the offering of this modified genetic fruit

Or, are the altruistic goals of elite and powerful for humanity to become moot

Begging the question: Is the deadly potential of this human experiment needed

Or, is humanity better served by the eons-old method, Earth is naturally seeded?

Soul’s Journey Given


Soul Given

Ghost like, dark mist cloud of evil slither unseen through sky of goodness’ light with sinister deed to ensue, malevolently executing its providence of domain to refute that which is preached to be said, its wonderment of resolve is sanctioned unto the being who sees to this truth of beginning yet not fulfillled by the challenge that doth make known too, its presence unto the seeing Being.

Cloud of goodness that envelopes each living soul being is the challenge to sustain; for within each is the whisper of evil yet contained but, wanting and piercing to be fulfilled in the full goodness of the the glory it seeks to domain.

The harmony of balance is the Soul’s journey given to sustain giving providence of the domain to the goodness of light

Paradox to Existence – The Stroke of Death


d

  

I wrote this contemplation some-time ago but, in the course of readying for a move I came across it and thought to post:

 Paradox to ExistenceThe Stroke of Death

In contemplation of the last and final moment of life,

As the last breath escapes past parted lips,

What thought will consume a brain dying?

Will it be:

  • The sudden flash of life’s long forgotten memories; 
  • the wish for things to have been done differently; 
  • the last taste of a favorite food or drink; or simply, 
  • You just DIE!?

  

Speculation of that final event,

Parallels the speculation to what follows.

 

To experience is to know – then it is too late,

To communicate!

 Another Paradox to Existence.

The Snake


snake

Change in location, major change in life

The outcome of agumented, mental strife

A change brewed with passage of time

And ceaseless conflict with a conflicted mind

Proponents to living in the Now

Don’t often express the guide to How

Leaving to chance just to know When

A life-changing move is easiest to defend

Reflecting upon life’s traveled course

Can be a misleading, information source

The answer may lie with nature of the Snake

Shedding old skin: simply a living trait
