globalization easily explained…

reversion to the mean

in the clouds masculine
explosions rattle
once dusted mountains
amidst the groan of a green
town splayed onto the
outskirts of the middle
of nowhere. land eroded by
winds of the colonial breath
wait on lightning from a
creation dream to start
the story over. nothing will
change but we’re thinkin’
more of the same will
be much better next time.

we like our delusions to
be the size of our cocks,
which are obviously bigger
& spit more goo than
those other guys. after
rebuilding everything already
waiting to be destroyed
my cock says we can
knock it right back down
again. could it really
be that simple? i
don’t see why not.

  1. big boys like to play…but hardly thinks about the clean up and who will do it or suffer from the most.
    I like the fact you pointed to the masculinity of such and I hope when we have mostly women leaders who can vote for war or not, thsese sort of things won’t happen much…
    yet the title points me to ponder on globalization as a whole in terms of music, clothing, definition of beauty etc and within such a context I am not sure it should have a masculine tonality but hey I digress…

    as usual this one as most of your work can go in several places…making me think which I totally love and all lol

    • Thanks kindly for the compliments. I agree with you on most of your thoughts regarding the idea of masculinity, but disagree with you that women are innately any more peaceful than men. (Margaret Thatcher comes to mind as one big exception… In the specific case of the poem, I decided to focus on the masculine ideal as it is mostly composed of bullshit and mythos, making it easy to satirize. Plus, one stereotype is as useless as all the rest, so there is no reason to think there are any ‘sacred cows’ that are off limits to critical thinking.

      Glad you caught the various branches used to thatch the poem together. It is very useful to build in a degree of freedom of interpretation in any given poem. Makes the poem read deeper as well as giving a better chance of finding common ground between writer and reader.

      Sorry, I’m running my mouth again! Anyhow, appreciate the kindness. Glad you enjoyed the poem as well as the thinking that goes along with it (lol!) Take care,

      crb.

  2. HW my dear, HW, name 2 female leaders whom you have found did not stem from the mindset of peace, most of them often came on the political scene from a peaceful mindset with the exception of rosa who won from a coup grr thus based on the past history since 1954 where I think we had the first leader to present, the amount of them who were for war is quite minute and we can agree from there on that the precedence is proof enough wouldn’t you say?

    Run your mouth, where? it is your blog…lol

  3. A lot of truth about the bullshit of bravado in this. Uncomfortable in places, exactly the effect you were going for, without a doubt. Great job, dude. Enjoyed the visit. Been a while, hope you’re doing OK. Self hosting now, huh? And a new theme? Looks great.
