The Art of Tea and Poetry

A Tapestry
A tapestry of enmity / Woven worlds of strife / Threads of hate collaborate / Unraveling all of our lives
Annals of Abraham
Pregnant night aborts the dawn / Poxing the earth below / Festering fields of human hate / Drown reason in irrational throe Hissing hostility pierces the sky / Scattering mo…
The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's bad…
Birth of a River
mute starkness / an exhausted desert / blue sky white night / flesh on flesh / marital rite / in heat, soaked in sweat / body to body / a rapturous duet<br /…
A Lone Traveler
A solitary spirit / Effeminate in form Asphalting miles of memories / Treading many a storm: Intellectual roads / Laid with diamonds and dust Carnal paths / La…

Huxley's Kaleidoscope: O Brave New World

Chaotic pieces of tinted glass
Kidnap loitering light
Slivered images of a history
Pause in fluid flight

Frantic fragments frolic
On the landscape of man's mind
Corporation coated color
Change the pigments of our time

Pharmaceutical and Fast Food traffickers
Sell contentment on TV
Promoting purchased happiness
Aiding and abetting consumer Junkies

Commercialized reality
Optical illusions of new age design
Plagiarizing humanness
Into placid patterns of life

Technology viewed through a stereoscope
Identical images side by side
The right eye sees the naked truth
The other pixeled lies
Gyrating shards of genius
Networking Man into social bliss
Coercing him with convenience
Luring him into an apps abyss

High tech hussies entice the masses
With gadgets of the day
New generations of iOS and Android
Digital pimps procuring robotic play

In this pacifying plasma paradise
Where automation trumps skill and craft
Mediocrity is Man's magnum opus
Independent thinking mere heresy of the past  

Pinch of Pepper:

Societies of the early twentieth century admired speed, technology and material modernity, as much as our society worships them today. Brave New World is the title of a book written by Aldous Huxley and published in 1932. It depicts a futuristic utopian society in which the individual is sacrificed for the good of the state, science is used to coerce and control and any form of art and/or history were outside the law.

A Lone Traveler
A solitary spirit / Effeminate in form Asphalting miles of memories / Treading many a storm: Intellectual roads / Laid with diamonds and dust Carnal paths / Laced with rubies and lust Spiritual trails / Blazed with topaz and morr…
A Game of Chess
Two armies / On a checkered field are placed / Brother against brother / Ancient hatred retraced Ishmael and Issac / Born of synonymous seed / The younger hewed ivory / The older ebony cleaved Abraham's sons / Great nations promised both<br…
The Desert of the Real
I am a desert of / orphaned emotion / Bruised and battered by a brutal sun / Wisdom and wilderness were once my element / I was created long before life had begun In each crystal of sand / pumps the heart of a universe / Constructs of conscious…
Cogito Ergo Sum
Trees of autumn weep their beauty / Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth / Intellectual tears of / I think therefore I am / Cry molecules of philosophy / Over deaf grasses of high tech generations / I am the last leaf / Clinging desperately onto…
