in the grip of creation's duality

in the earth we are faced with two tyrannies

the reactionary tendency to freeze life

in some static vision of an imagined perfection

excluding all but the likes who adhere

to such a soul-destroying stasis

and the smug self-serving progressive action

of imposing a fantasy of conformity

as if enlightenment were a fiat accompli

to be followed on pain of rejection for our individuality

and since our worldly state is to grapple with these conditions

how can any of us really know

which adherent of which tendency will be

the enemy we face today?
