Kool Aid

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Perhaps at some points in life

-in the name of progress-

We may have to drink “the” Kool Aid

or “a,” “some,” “an” –

Articles, technicalities aside,

We do drink the powder

Oversweetness, radioactivity, and all


A Brief Malaise Between Action

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

The goings on of ongoing events speak to a certainty of progression

The news, the editorials, the one-liners cracked by clever friends

Seminars by professors, philanthropists, scientists, diplomats

We give our hearts to the retired men of renown

They who have learned something, but speak of everything

Our souls are trusted to scores, self-worth subscribed to rankings

But what can we do but trust? For we must leave every stone unturned.
