Benghazi: A Path to Listening


Sun rays on the African plane, Saharan sand blown by dark,

Night vision green, pipeline to paradise assassins, jealous,

Dreaming of Qaddafi’s future oasis, an irrigated Libya,

Liberation by war, the American way,

This time it is different, the hand of peace in listening,

We see the hand of peace, I see the hand of peace in you,

I hear you, finally, listening to the atoms, the small,

The voice, it is here, in this poem, connected to love,

We see the hand of peace in the azaan, in the haj,

In the sheep herders’ desert religion, Islam,

Islam is peace and justice in pure form, apolitical reality,

Small fire on a changing planet, brothers and sisters,

Turkish blood in connection with American dreams,

My brothers’ and sisters’ wells are slowly going dry,

In the evaporated carbon of the globalized West,

Smokestack century, golden black of the sands,

The silent know what’s important grief,

God gave all the riches of the world to the Kings,

The 1%, the Illuminati’s sons and daughters,

Americanism in the world, being-in-a-dollar,

But he did not give them the most important Light,

Grief, because it is the darkness that we cry out to God,

Attached to Gaia’s body, Aware of bare needs,

Inseparable from the Simple Way,

The people of the book are uniting in this Vortex,

Spinning colliding social networks,

WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram paradise,

Internet connected humanity, hope, connection,

Gaia’s brain, together in wires across the Earth, brain network,

Peace, here, Spinning colliding hurricane between,

East and West, rich and poor, home and refugee,

Lemon yellow, golden dawn, lemonade out of lemons,

Peace is here in the space of Art,

The art science for today,

Facebook Art-Brain-Project,

An arrow to serenity,

Brothers and sisters

Around the Globe,

Love, you…

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
