Dissociation Sestet (Force)

When born our infant limbic system
administers our indications
of what to lean toward and away from—
like sprouts emerging from the topsoil
we blossom up from warmth and feedings
or shrivel down from cold starvation.

Partnership Sestet (Dwelling People)

We start the journey with our parents
for nurturing and first direction.
With rivals then we push and pull,
developing our skills and muscle.
Our idols help us dreams express.
Our allies bring them to creation.


Anatomy Sestet (Great Accumulating)

An epithelial horizon
distinguishes what’s in and out
with reference to our physiques.
This is attractively simplistic
and gives a useful intuition
about the bodies we inhabit.


Experiencing Sestet (Great Possessing)

Perceptions gotten through our senses
are further tagged as bad and good
and joined with kindred circumstances
for patterns useful in the future
to increase chances for successes
and thus our actions are adapted.


The Other Sestet (Obstruction)

Constrained at birth by our dependence
on being cared for by our mothers
we cultivated their approvals
yet sought when older to be free.
But now we see through this pretence.
We all have human debt incurred.
