Theater of Cruelty

Theater of Cruelty

Is it really true that a lost soul can through a drunken walk discover their own shadow?

Cast by a single body, the negative trace, bleached black light, heal mama?

I don’t want light, let me rest at night, angels come home, the fields need you,

At home my shadow flits about in the past, traumatized by an assassin’s bullet,

Headed into the heart of the pope, Grey Wolves are so easy to throw out,

When they bite back, when your attack dog, 

When your terrorist turns and bites the hand that feeds him,

I need some Bin Laden weed, I’m not high, I’m Baha’i,

God speaks to me in the persistence of nightmares and shadows,

The negative trace of what could be, but shouldn’t be,

I don’t want dog eat dog, he who bites the hand that feeds him should live,

Listen to terrorists and submit to what they ask for,

They are often poets, and articulate, rape their land and they speak with their teeth,

Don’t bleach their shadow black ink with chlorine, highlight it as an imprint,

Look within to see the demon in you, does that make you not him?

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.
