there are those who frown upon talk of the political

as if power struggles in their own lives simply did not

exist---

they act as if the political only dealt with those

vultures in suits

whose talking heads bobble back & forth

to the sound of coins bouncing & echoing in the

coffers,

but everything is political---

all aspects of human life

counteract each other through movements of power

be them small or large---

for the personal political &

the universal political

do not separate---they are not mutually exclusive &

therefore to deny oneself an understanding of these

realities in our

present world,

is to deny oneself of the very possibility

to improve your own life as well as those living

around you---

better to stay awake,

even if sleep may be restful &

though our final slumber may not be too far off,

to close your eyes just because you don’t like what

you see

or cup your hands over your ears,

just because you don’t like what you hear,

only shows that

YOU

have instead developed a taste for denial & ignorance

in

OUR

world.
