Don’t Take My Anger Away
I love the smell of napalm in the morning,

Torching old lovers and making room,

I don’t want to leave, but you give me no choice,

All I asked for was love,

I don’t want rules,
It makes me sad to love and not be heard,

To not be what I once thought I would be,

A man with a house, a picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a dog,

Honey, you barked up the wrong tree,

I wish we could just be, undistracted by time,
No worries of money or status,

My love, I am on a fault line between two worlds,

You are on the land, and over here is the sea,

I hear the siren’s call and am infatuated by chaos,

Wave and motion, travel and discovery,
Yet, somewhere your kiss makes me year for roots,

The way you moan makes me want to stay,

To be turn away for the dirtbag climber that I am is,

A dagger in my heart,

Is a text message saying, it’s over…
We can’t change the power imbalance right now,

Since no, I’m not kicking you out,

So I think the thing that needs to give is the relationship part,

Still your friend though and wanting you to get a break,

My hope is still that you find your way and that you and i will remain friends,

Through and beyond this dark part of your life.

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.
