TAILORED TRUTH

Odysseus outsmarts Polyphemus the Cyclops by getting him drunk
(All for a good cause! - Hooray!)



(For whose cause!)
TRUTH

Anything new to say?
Pl...e...ad change from jaded, jokes...
Juiceless!
No?
Thought not...challenge?
Stitch up that belching hole, rubber-lipped,
Kisser of whores...
Lying!

POLAR OPPOSITES

N. meets S.
TIPPED...UPSIDE...DOWN
Karma Sutra 69

On a cloudful of dreams... mattressed,
Lusting, melting, merging momentarily...lovers.

In a swampful of disappointment... sucked dry,
Starving, illiciting, ignoring instantly...strangers.

Sutra Karma 69
DOWN...UPSIDE...TIPPED
S. meets N

Whirlwind of Lovers - Wiliam Blake - llustration for Dante's Inferno


To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.


(Wiliam Blake (1757-1827) lst Stanza from 'Auguries of Innocence')


Odysseus moved by the fate of his companions, begs Circe to restore them to their original form

and all we wish for... all the human heart aches for... is to love and be loved... and yet, in hurt, we shrivel up and shrink our heart, shrink our love... bitter... and yet to love, is to create more love, it is endless, it doesn't disappear it just sits in our chest, getting heavier and heavier... until a trigger helps us to cry, unashamedly, unbashfully, embracing the entire sadness, vomiting it up... knowing, feeling, soothed.... surely... that more love will be given... unashamedly, with courage, with gusto, because that's who we are.

Funny old thing ... 'love'! It just kinda gets you when your back is turned... when your defences are down.
