Daylight Savings Time: Spirit Style Chemistry

Chained to a laboratory bench, on my third column,
Midnight, the blood moon injects red rays of Sunlight,
Reflected from her surface, sister Moon’s face is,
Alive, through the glass I suddenly realize that I lost,
An hour, sand through the hour glass I hate this,
Prison, my father’s dream, not mine.

Fifteen years at the laboratory bench and I wanted out,
The chains held me there, with fear of being without,
Money or shelter, I clung onto a profession that I had,
Earned every right to do, Ph.D. in chemistry, they all said,
“Good boy, wow you are smart, so cool!”
Little did they know this was my father’s dream not mine.

I am Eagle and a mouse, I want to soar and burrow,
Experiments are too slow, I want to astral travel,
Perhaps chemistry can help me do that, not to say,
That I will just pop acid, but an appropriately timed,
Trip to Pine Ridge, South Dakota may grant me,
Access to Peyote, the spirit molecule, and therein,

A way to reveal a path forward, in tune with nature,
You see I hate modern technology, I yearn to return,
To the land and live close to my Mother’s body,
Gaia, earth, is an abused old shrew in the minds,
Of the technologists, rage against the machine,
I am a bull on parade, a new world is coming.

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.
