           FELINE PREDATION IN THE SUBATOMIC REALM


Everything is Everything, except when it’s Not
Because Quarks can be such a Strange and Charmed lot
This is exceedingly complex and of course very simple
When Schrödinger’s Cat ambushes Quantum Mice

With Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle

CETACEAN
                                                                       
BREATH-JOY SPOUTS CASCADE UP - AND AWAY - AND DOWN MY FLANKS
AS I JUMP PAST LIQUID MOTHER’S SURFACE TENSION TO TASTE THE SKY
AND WAVE A FLIPPER IN SALUTATION TO FATHER SUN.
DESCENDING CURVE TO MOTHER OCEAN, I INSERT MYSELF
WITH GRACE AND PASSION AND A QUICK KISS FROM MY TAIL
TO ONE OF HER SOFT SWELLS.  BUBBLES TICKLE ME AS AIR MOLECULES
LEAPFROG UP MY SKIN TO REJOIN THEIR COUSINS TOPSIDE.  
HARD RIGHT TURN AS MY CLICKS BOUNCE BACK FROM A SNACK
- WHOSE SPIRIT I THANK -
EVEN AS I SNAP AND TRANSPOSE LITTLE LIFE TO SUSTAIN BIGGER LIFE;
TO WATER DANCE IN BLESSING TO AND FROM
THE CREATOR OF THE OCEANS OF MY UNIVERSE.  

WOMAN’S SACRED TOUCH

Soft as the swell of a gentle wave
Is the sweet liguid flowering
Of the Vertical Lips of Heaven
Softest Universe of Eternity
Where Two can become One
                                                                     
OCEAN POEM

So hideous and polluted skies
Such misery, starvation and pain
Cult robots and endangered seas
Human greed makes love in vain
A Deathship intersection with
their leaders in bite range
We’ll snatch them fore and aft,
Said the Dolphin and the Whale
A Primate lunch serving two-fold,
Is the conclusion of this Cetacean Tale


                          ASHAU VALLEY, 1968


Clawing up the abyss of unconsciousness; as the heat and stench of urine and feces from voided bowels Dance Macabre with the ghastly aromas of acrid gunsmoke, hot lead, copper, iron and steel from explosives – from my blood – from the blood of the dead Team Leader whose decapitated chest cavity I’m covered with.  Now the first sick stirrings of pain and nausea as my brain reels from sensory overload………LAY DOG!!  NO SOUND………NO MOVEMENT!!………My mind scrambling in desperation, attempting to still the rush of adrenaline and heartbeat hammering so loud it will be my own suicide call to the murdering Demons from the North, briefly glimpsed by one cracked glance from a swollen, bloodshot, blood drenched eye barely able to focus past concussion shock.  Enemy Warriors feeding my horror and fear, circling around us like two-legged vultures stabbing and shooting anyone or anything that moves.  Anticipating the bayonet, the bullet, I still freeze even as sharp steel begins a slow and vicious probe with casual malignancy.  Sudden rage and anger……as I refuse to die today.  Lord Buddha smiles……briefly……the Gods of War nod……and suddenly, Iron Dragons fly to me spitting lead death at my tormentors.  Alternate waves of relief and agony wash over my torn flesh and raw, exposed nerves as Screaming Eagles and Golden Black Horsemen pull me from the Pit of Doom, All the Way to the grotesque insanity of NOW!

THE STOCK MARKET

WHEN YOUR EYES DIM AND CLOUD AND YOUR BRAIN MELTS
AS STRANGE CHEMICALS DEPRIVE YOU OF HEARING AND TASTE
RAISE YOUR TREMBLING ARM PALSIED WITH
RADIATION BURNS AND SHRINKING ARTERIES
RAISE IT HIGH IN DEFIANCE AS THE SMOG IN YOUR LUNGS
CONGRATULATES THE CANCER OF GREED AND ECOLOGICAL IDIOCY
AND AS YOUR BLOATED HEART EXPLODES AND YOUR
LAST POLLUTED BREATH WHEEZES FROM YOUR SUNKEN CHEST
YOU CAN SAY “DOW INDUSTRIALS DOWN ONE IN CLOSING”



INERTIA-MOMENTUM-IRONY-FUTILITY

BY STEPHEN J. JACOBS
 
FADE IN:
                        
Sick, twisted, crumbling empires clash with ever increasing hordes of violent religious fanatics and sociopaths spewing like homoerotic theological vomit
from the maws of the malignant, misogynist priesthoods.  The ordained accomplices of criminally insane gods or more apt…cosmic demons.
I, embarrassed and now feeling the shame of being a human,am transfixed and horrified as I gaze at the atrocity of narcissistic anthropocentric species hubris.  My anger and disgust expands exponentially as I, an unwilling member of a possible abomination of evolution,become a very reluctant witness, as “we”
- the self-proclaimed “most intelligent species” - prove to be collectively, at best, only stupid, ignorant and brainwashed.  Yes, “we”, shouting out with such
Psychotic pride and neurotic joy, our ability to be clever and manipulative
in greed, power sickness and destruction. a truly intelligent species does not commit an arrogant,cretinous idiot suicide by polluting, poisoning, raping and murdering its own planet...unless, of course!!!
They enjoy being the object of ridicule by Extraterrestrial comics,the newest recipients of the Universe’s Darwin Awards.
A pathetic history lesson for pre-school Alien children, before they attend Galactic K-12 for actually, really, truly intelligent sentient species.
Etc., Etc., Etc.
               
FADE TO BLACK



EARTH ANTHEM

I pledge Allegiance to Mother Earth
To the Planet on which I and others Evolved
To the Ecology by which I Stand
One World, Indivisible in Biological Reality
Of Justice and of Wisdom and of Balance    
For All Who Care!
For those opposed to this...
Why don’t you go play with sharks,

or crocodiles, or adult anacondas,

or hop into a live volcano!
