Running


My heart ruptures, bursting-red, every time I think of you, I am spent

Running away for the insular life, to grow like a crystal in the dark

We cannot escape time, the memory of friends we ran with

We were like baby turtles cracking through our shells, crawling to the sea

Broken and helpless in a world of predation, we did not enough to be terrified
           
We leapt with madness through the wild garden, driven by the biting wind

Trussed up by lust, like sacrificial offerings sent to the gods, cut open and

Rising on a column of smoke, chased by nightmares, we ran from the sun  

We ran through a maze, climbed over walls of thorns, lacerating us as we went

Tearing at our flesh, we tore each other apart, envious and confused

Every sharp finger indicting our ambition, each dream turned to ash and dust

            We ran from ourselves and found nothing in the end

            We were children of the seventies, Generation X

Bondage


Beauty on the screen
Electric light, and visions
Shape the lust for life

Digital poisons
Pixel-pixel HQR
Computer prisoners

Translating signals
For wide screen TV’s, flat-curved
A life in shadows

Cast on concrete walls
Fill my emptiness through the
Miracle of light

Beneath sheets of glass
Contorted flesh twists inside
In plastic boxes

Beauty release me
Come, free me from this bondage
I, the unwilling

Submit myself, my
Secret self to your vision
Illusory you

Emergence 3.0 - Section Three, Earth; Part Sixteen, Existence; Chapter One, Flesh

Chapter One: Flesh

The flesh remembers, and it never forgets.

The record of our experiences are pounded into our corporeal form, cell by cell.

Our bodies are a living witness to the events that shape us, handing down that narrative from generation to generation in perpetuity.

We are changed by every new experience, each moment of perception is a new thread sewn into the seams of our identity. These are the fibers of the spindle, they are the engrams of memory, protein by protein they are woven into the fabric of our lives.

Our unique and individual experiences are like a tapestry, sewn with precious metals, embroidered with gem-stones, they are an endowment, a rich heritage passed on to our descendants.

It is their only lasting inheritance.

We experience this in our dreaming, when we are transported to places and times that we know we have never been to, never seen, and yet they are as familiar to us as the contents of our own homes.

We talk with strangers as if they were our dearest friends, and see ourselves reflected in a mirror, but we do not recognize our countenance or visage.

The flesh never forgets, it remembers everything.

Chapter Two: Bi Pedal

The interactive relationship between the creature, the animal, its body, and the environment determined the spectrum of its consciousness.

Standing against the pull of gravity under the weight of Earth’s atmosphere, balancing on two legs, these differentiated human beings from every other creature, the pivot on a central axis, dancing on two feet, and walking.

Chapter Three: Stereo Hearing

Talking; the verbal sharing of ideas, feelings, perceptions, aural communications; the use of sound waves is deliberate. It is slow and luxuriant compared to the speed of light, which itself cannot compare to the instantaneous transfer of thought in a quantum field.

They are the crashing of waves through the body, adding depth to insight.

Chapter Four: Binocular Vision

Bands of light cross the full spectrum, piercing organic lenses from corner to corner, one-hundred and eighty degrees, light reflecting off of every object in the field of vision, light and shadow refracting in a wide array of color, creating depth by which we determine distance, and find our way through three dimensions of space.

Chapter Five: Hemispheric Brain

The brain was split in two, and this architecture served as kind of cognitive override.

If the messages from the brain stem flooded the organ with fear, desire, or any other strong feeling, the force of it was divided.

The human being was split down the middle, left for right.

It was an organic duality.

Chapter Six: Thirst

The human body is water.

The body needs water, as it needs oxygen to fill the lungs, fill blood cells racing through veins, into tissues.

To thirst is to know that the end is near. It will drive the average person mad. The knowledge that death is approaching, and the end of the body’s suffering.

Chapter Seven: Duality

The whole body is a cognitive organ, not just the brain, cerebellum, and cerebral cortex.

The body senses, and remembers.

The whole being is contained in the tiniest part, in the nucleus of every cell. It pushes us forward, a chemical drive feeding the quantum field of creativity, a neural net rooted in organic chemistry.
