sour fruit for the sugar coated
that get devoted to what their friends enrolled in
embolden the course your holding
a gear for a master remote controlling us into dust
crusty infected stumps of isolated shadows
born into individuality for the trip
but taking it too literate
words are arrogant lies
that i find in the roof of my mind
but there is no roof
just another lie
to entrap the essence of 'i'
spreading it out like light through a prism
to fill the life within social replication
a stone shift to sand
sifting away from ancestral memories
knowledge, will, and honor
Author's Note: a shadow in the wind will walk upstream and destroy the source.
Powerful images of shadow and dust filter through this intense visionary experience. From "controlling us into dust" to "a stone shift to sand" the distillation of the individual...if at all possible, opposes and interrupts the common replication process. The ending is magnificent--where the "ancestral memories" leave off-- "knowledge, will, and honor" actions of the individual beyond the "making copies" stage-- gives a vision of the possibility of individual free creative expression.
