The Other

<<Feb. 23/15.>>

 

Once upon a time

There was a tribe of “human beings”

 

Taken for granted in tribal life were

  • collaboration
  • cooperation
  • community

 

& when separation came along

& blew it all to smithereens

 

Suddenly there was nothing but Other

Now, everyone was Other

 

The fear

& the envy

 

Took root

& multiplied

 

Multiplied endlessly.

 

On a finite planet

Dominated by fear of other

Envy of other

 

& a host of insatiable “needs” born of neurosis

Neuroses caused by the separation

 

Disaster was simply inevitable.

 

Do you see?
