Some jerk sent us two boxes of this awful book (SPOILER ALERT: George Washington - Patriot; George Soros - Pinhead) instead of anything soldiers at a remote outpost in Afghanistan might need, like, say, food or soap. Just burned the whole lot of them on my Commander’s orders.

Under sunlight the green cubes fluoresce a strong blue around the edges. Only sunlight will cause the crystals to fluoresce like this, normal interior lights show the crystals to be only a pale green color. Under broad-spectrum UV light they fluoresce a bright white-blue.
Perhaps tomorrow I’ll get a good one of it in an open window, or under a blacklight. Yea or nay?

Working toward death, we all know how to despise

our fellow man, fellow woman, our bodies and lives.

Working toward a goal: lucre, enrichment and toys

motivates and compels these dimly-lit girls and boys

towards success, measured on a ruler we’re self-instating

doled out as if it were some sort of precious metal plating.

Frail though they be, subtly guided social impasses

though directed by none, shape the world’s classes.

We cry out aloud and become one with the crowd

our creation: a mess as we litter the ground.

As our lives fade away within those limitations

what we all truly know at the end: our stations.

Off the top of my head.

My ethereal self

elements released into the atmosphere

grounded in earth

seeded as beneficiary

given back willingly

Earth mother host alive

one human, dead

gone and lost to the rest

stardust and hydrogen.
