our world
is not
a matrix
but
rather
a scrolling
marquee

FIGURE

collective
experiences
craft
faintly
discernible
scripts
on the
scroll
left to right

GROUND

experienced
collectives
craftily
script
discernible
feints
that
scroll
right to left

ACT ONE

the
blissfully
ignorant
ignorantly
blissful
comfortable
and
youthful
thought
to be
a brighter
lot
than
the more
obscure
masses

they
glow
with the
blissfully
ignorant
ignorantly
blissful
glow
of
comfort
and
youth
that obscures
a more
massive
lot of
brighter
thoughts

they
are blind
to the
fact
that
they
are blinded
to the
facts

they
cannot
see
the faint
figure
on the
scroll
instead
(it
figures)
they
see
the
scrolling
feints
in its stead

and so
their mind (singular)
will
drift
right to left

INTERMISSION

the glow
is magnified
by
“education”
in schools
only
focusing
their
burning
rays
of “knowledge”
directly
upon
the
soul
of
the world

after all
they
told us
education is the lighting of a fire
didn’t
they?

burn

america

burn

our tears
will evaporate
in the flames
anyway
nothing to see here
move on

ACT TWO

the
glow
is extinguished
only
by
true learning
direct
knowledge
raised
and focused
solely
by being
burned
and
schooled
by
the world

what of
those
whose
school
education
is razed
burned
extinguished
directly
by
the world?
what of
those
back from the mouth of hell,
their souls,
all that was left of them,
shatter’d and sunder’d?

some
will
reason
why
when they get
out

they
will
reason
out
the
script
when they get
why

and
their minds (plural)
will
drift
left to right

ACT THREE

and
what of
those
intense
diverse
purposeful
put-upon
few
who
figure
the crafty
intents
and
purposes
of
those
invisible hands
crafting
diversions
to
put upon
the figure?

they
see
right beyond
the feints
scripted
by the left
but
also
beyond
the faint
left to right
script

and
so
the masses
who
can’t
see
beyond
what
they
can
see
don’t mind (verb)
the
few
warnings
put upon
them
by
the
put-upon
few

and so
those
few
who
see
what
those
who
can’t
see
can’t
see
are
left to write
