Liturgy of a Spartans “bowl”

Liturgy of a Spartans “bowl”

A Poem by Mountain Bear

Reactions to a magnificent display of modern...manhood.


Tungsten evoked kinetic energy washed across the convocation of aspiration and broken dreams.  Emotionally charged rays polarized by a global evocation of mirrored neurons pulsing, contracting, jumping, shouting, gyrating, in uninhibited dance alternating incoherently between tragedy and triumph. The warrior millionaires present their bannered colors with prescribed floridity.  The incantation of the media shaman commences.  “He Fumbles …He Passes …He Runs…He Kicks…He Scores!”    The incoherent responsal both deafening and awe-inspiring ensues…and HE cries, “Loss! …Innocence, clarity, justice, simplicity, purity…loss!”  The wonder of SPEACTACLE! ...  Bright, explosive, frenetic,… voluntas seputus!  The convergence of media, technology, humanity, art, music, capitalism, and corruption.  Now it comes: The miracle of metarrhythmisis: The Eucharist of modern Sparta, “TOUCHDOWN!”

Are we more likely to whisper in churches or banks? Do we invest ourselves in religious traditions or sports? Who are we trying to fool? God? Or ourselves?
