Planetary Collapse





It’s getting worse:

eruption

cataclysmic malfunction

accelerated change

imminent collapse of this modern

civilization

planetary dis-ease

death of the ocean

species becoming extinct on the daily

crashing

&

burning

all around us,

capitalism is

going

going

gone.


But still, it

writhes about our necks

cynicism grows

malignant

(yet goodness is where the ego is not)

anxiety

suicidality

depression

an opioid crisis

to avoid the unbearable

pain

&-suffering.


Such is ego—cultural artifact

of power

less

than the chain of transformation

necessary for us

to master

our own drives—

we cannot seem to change what we want to want.


There's no glue

holding us

2gether

as we rip each other apart

in a frenzy

combative

competitive

never contemplative

of the broken self

of the need to

dig

deep

burrow

down

tunnel

out

into paradigm shift:

a unified consciousness

out there

in the field beyond

you vs. me

us vs. them

this vs. that

here vs. there

right vs. wrong

transcending so many (dis)likes

towards true

Love.
