How can we know our prime direction?
This question’s harder than it seems.
Who spins those threads? To ask reopens
the chance to make each moment new.
The signal’s there for our perception.
It offers us a robust means.
Throughout our daily ambulations
our ears and eyes are best kept ready
for sources of concealed obstruction
that might stop progress in our tracks.
We also need find inspirations
to help us in our quest keep steady.
In ancient Athens long ago,
the slaves and women suffered durance.
Men worshipped virile domination,
erecting phallic herms galore.
Their world around them soon crashed low,
for karmic forces have no patience.
