We learn to hear the intervals
through sensing gaps both far and near—
how some are music, others not
then storing them on our insides
and choosing those for our renewals
to guide forthwith our new behavior.



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.

Book Review

“Book Review”

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.

The Reign of the Phallus: Sexual Politics in Ancient Athens
EC Keuls, 1993



The books of rules have many chapters
containing sections to elide,
their antecedents proven wrong.
This often causes controversy.
How dare we question our ancestors?!
But even they would say it’s right.
