Orchids: Night War



“What I give form to in daylight is only one percent of what I have seen in darkness.”

-M.C. Escher

Law stay away, I have arson to do at night under the thunderstorm clouds of Perses,
Sacking in my dreams those without the remorse and guilt of a man who lives in hell,
I don’t like knowing what I know about the places that time has forgotten and passed,
Today we don’t live in a place where nights reveals the stars, electric buzzsaw lights,

I was the finder and the keeper, I never though I would need to be the creeper,
..but my keeper, turned out to be the reaper, and now it’s bloodlust, masta in the rain,
Tales of woe I was strung out on the line, and I though my life was fine, it wasn’t mine,
Fine, bring me the torch, I see a flower on the other side, across the line, in time,

Darkness and fire, hammer and the clock, throughout the whole time I was in darkness,
I had no physical pain, for many months and years I had a vision of blood and night,
Across the sands of the Middle East, don’t know why I cared or felt it like I did,
Connected in a way without much distance, crazy how it sounds, electric wired gave me,

Night, and death and war, saw the feelings transmitted and went mad, burn my life down,
What was it with comfort and padding, not sure what I could do without being on the edge?
How can you learn to love in desperation if you have a safety net? What if they don’t see?
How can I relate to them? Without a sense of the new connections and life I see?

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.
