Someday we will all be united - but only if we curb our greed and jealousies.

carried across the water

great solace, I sought, in a lake

so undisturbed

I thought it was polished silver

with haste

fish gathered - where a white-hot staircase . . .

a double helix of steps stretched all the way to the sun

the fish greeted it with soft kisses

and it was sweeter than ice cream


with telekinesis - they stood me upright


what they said left me with goose bumps

their telepathy went into the depths of my being

and they had a sense of humour I desperately wanted to take back home


I was taught HATE invites counter-force in the world . . . they showed me examples - whirlpools of ignorance

the secret to their exalted innocence, they said, was ego-death

it was true, I sensed no posturing even though the men wore posing trunks and were deadringers for Steeve Reeves and Serge Nubret

the girls were a vision and looked incredible in their bikinis - these people were mixed-race . . .

some were piebald - others were covered in polka dots

wear what you dig . . . and you guys certainly bring something SPECIAL to the party - my following words were a cry for help: TAKE ME TO YOUR PLANET!!! I knew they sensed the urgency of my broken spirit - but insisted: TURN IT AROUND. STAY HERE AND WORK IT OUT. WE ARE . . . FUTURE VERSIONS OF YOUR RACE

they had dimples and freckles and big hearts . . . holding hands, they all did a body wave - it was hilarious

suddenly I was back in my living room and Trump was on CNN - God, I thought, we all have a ton of soul-searching to do
