Simplicity Trumps Affluence [Royal Flush] SPIRITUAL BUTTONHere is another Monday poem for all who may be ambivalent or outright their work, particularly the screeching of an unwelcome alarm clock.  The division of into precise compartments is a relatively new phenomenon in human and human experience.  The rise of the clock as an often stress-inducing taskmaster is perhaps the heart — or ticking bomb — of civilization.  As measures — quite poorly — the of most of our tasks in living, the clock all-to-often chops the organic flow of human into well dissected but not so alive remains.  The interruption of by loud noises is a particular pet peeve of mine.  Alarm clocks often enforce inadequate and this too little rest is notoriously bookended by a fretful inability to get to at night.  Of course, the nearly inescapable pressures to book it all day arrest most any of nabbing any re- or sublime sabbath.  When Things Aren't Adding Up in Your Life, Try Subtracting SPIRITUAL BUTTONThe clock serves as a proxy for order but may very well create more disorders than it harmonizes.  This poem uses the familiar cadence of drills — Left, Right, Left, Right, Left — to allude to the presumptive inherent in such a go go, make it happen culture.  This swaggering onomatopoeia resonates more with martial than the deep harmonies of and the human spirit, which transcend left and right.  I find that encouraging folks to break rank in order to reconnect with their deepest harmonies is a recurring theme of mine, energized by an evangelical fervor.  So, if you are Riiiiiiiight…Whatever/Get up/You had/Left, may you uncover reinvigorating re- at every turn.
