Press Release:

The thinking eye
the following gaze
the idea of the west
gets you there and does the rest

The power of vision
the vision of power

The bullet is placed
where the sight is set
– knowledge is
to some extent
and perhaps culturally
Broken hearts
failed views
purple, green
red, brown, and blue
possible truths subject to proof

Energy and matter
are physical
even if unobservable
making their existence
in a slippery room

We expand
our cognitive domain
through the encounter
with a stranger,
through an expression
of biological interpersonal congruence

that lets us see
the other person
and open up space
for existence beside us
preventing us from falling

This is the biological foundation
of social phenomena:
without love,
without acceptance of others
living beside us
there is no social process,
and therefore, no humanness

With a sense of shame
with a bit of dignity
with a lot of organization
with a sense of oneness
