Dissecting Power

 

Abuse and authority

Always amplify each other.

How can one life

Ascend over others

Without war?

A body exists

As a volitile reaction.

The subconscious seeks balance

While the organism

Breathes and bleeds.

Fish eat fish,

Wolves eat sheep,

Humans eat everything.

We all know this,

But we’re always hungry,

Always volitile,

And alive.

Momentum is everything,

Ride it or die.

Truth and justice are ideas,

Believe or set them loose.

Choices are an action,

Reactions are inevitable,

Power responds to power,

Or else slowly falls away.

Abuse and authority

Always amplify each other.

Balance and/or power,

Which is more free?

 

Genesis

Oceans cascade

From unfathomable heights

Into the vast sculptured crevices

Of the planet’s bosom.

Numerous energies

Transmutated by tempest

Thrashed and torn asunder

Into pools of perfect chaos.

Writhing molecules

Repeatedly rearranged

In unprecedented forms

Of which many are miscarried.

Fortune’s devices

Favor but a few

Particular arrangements

To persist amid such tumultuousness.

Fluctuating forces

Pound vitality into matter,

Precipitating its progress

In discordant detumescence.

Patterns emerge

Inevitably in chance variables

Until at long last

A seedling erupts.

Implanted erection

Upon a rugged stone surface

Surfacing into the light

And its first growing pains.

Searing agony,

The flower’s contorted face

Gazing towards the sky

And screaming

“I’m Alive!”
