hello, cecil..

Posted to Poetry and Politics




my mind is inexcusably wandering....
I wonder... If everyone (all six-plus billion of us) were
to, by some unthinkable collective miracle, find true
internal peace all at the same time, would true external
peace then also exist? Is it simply statistical impossibility that will forever preclude world peace?

And what about activism? Is its value really only internal?
Does it have value? Is a Zen point of view beyond activism,
since this point of view is beyond reason?

Sorry, I'm up way too late, and I'm starting to fade...
I think it's definitely time for another beer...
