Evolution's Weight in Everyday Life

Evolution's Weight in Everyday Life

A Poem by Alfred Kukitz

consciousness layered by DNA and concepts of mind

Evolution's Weight in Everyday Life
Only a small drop of himself was left as
torrents, waves of superiority washed over him,
the self flickered in cascading forms of light & shadow
The purity of his own thought marred by repetition of pattern
He sank, the morass sucking him into darkness
if only a child's thought could save him?
He'd be free of all evolutionary layers
that confounded the mind and soul
The politics of pure imaginative thought could gather, 
Spirit, again, would stand a chance of lighting the soul

to be free from the joke of slime
but the rejoin the sublime creator's mind
a barely burning wick
a stump... that's really only who survives.

a hard, necessary... revolutionary and hopeful
place of childlike wonder- conquering the
thought that he is the ultimate authority.

Thanks Sami!
It's all rummaging around up there in my head wondering, forever wondering, when is it getting out. I can never tell them when.
