Earl, from deep in Ohio sends this along. Yep, he's at Denison
University in Granville, and for those of you familiar with the place, he's actually in Slayter Hall. That might sound
a bit provincial, but he and Dasa just returned from a month in Presov, Republika Slovenska. He gets around.
Earl is working on working on an essay titled "The MoJesus Connection - the Roots of Terror" - but,
as he says, that will have to come in installments.
For now, this:
Swollen with the leaven of spoken & written words
to be kneaded...
Punched, pulled & pummeled into something
fit for human consumption.
Needing & being kneaded, kneading & being needed
somehow all of a piece.
To feed & be fed there is work to be done
by & to us.
To know when/which is our lot
is not always clear.
it is our lot to consume & be consumed
Like the mythical snake swallowing its tail,
the human spirit
has a cannibalistic nature.
By logarhythmic progression & quantum leaps
the spirit grows
to whet an appetite
Capitalism of the heart & soul
would not deplete & despoil
Free enterprise of the spirit
could make us truly free!
