Nature is the Greatest Technologist

bionic manNature is technology
Design is divination
And all our man-made toys
Piggyback on creation
From Eden’s luscious gardens
To the Apple of Francisco
Idols still erected
Some rain-dance others disco
Yet people like a cancer
Spreading with a jitter
Hard-wiring the universe
From Mr. Morse to Twitter
And every tool is searching
For a righteous hands’ command
Our greatest foe –
Our only ally
Depending on where you stand

Jungle Poem

That longing
Slowly dying
At the bottom
Of your chest
You can feel its heartbeat
Faintly throbbing
Rising every morning
With you
Still awake
For years
Like a school of daisies
Waiting innocently
For the sun
To shine
Feeding from
The coldeness of
The earth
Taking refuge in a soil
Roughened by the days
Each grain of sand
A thousand years of memory
Stale waters
Soaking roots
Soggy pores
Sleepy buds
Blossoming peacefully
Only when its time
Beyond the stories
Of this world
Transcendent is
That uncivilized passion
That raw melancholy
That natural desire
To expand
Germinating in every grain
Of pollen
That instictual love
That beauty
That currency of existence
Ethereal
Swaying beneath
Our ignorant eyes

The Lawyer: Anarchy of Nature’s Laws

ImageBooks on my desk
Rules
A thousand years of culture,
A thousand manuscripts
But we’re still here
Killing, stealing, waging wars
You tell me
When walking on that road
The stone below you
Is pressed beneath your feet
And suddenly that violence
Once an act of crime
Becomes organic, part of human lives
An orange squeezed from living trees
A flower picked for someone loved
A cow chopped up into a meal
A man promoted, another fired
A baby born, another hungry dies
These laws, more natural
Than human made decrees
More permanent
Than fleeting scrolls
We aim for man-made justice
In this world
When maybe all we need to do
Is realize
That justice
Is not black or white
It’s in this order here
While artificial laws
Are subject to
The systems they create
And honestly
From what this world has seen
These systems failed
They failed so bad
And so
The time has come
For us to re-evaluate
To have the courage
To question all these rules
