    Mood: Dead
      

         "The Sky is a Landfill", the posthumous album and song title by Jeff Buckley. What could this possibly mean?

         This sky as cornucopia, wings and fingers spread wide to take what is free perhaps. But with that certainty the wind will bring unpleasant aromas to challenge you: Your conceptions, your hidden symbols, your psyche and ego jarred from its usual serene perch.

         They say that knowledge is power and ignorance is bliss. These clichés are certainties revisited by everyone at some stage; some moreso than others, some unwanting to know, to delve into the refuse, the bitterness, the other face to discovery and the ecstasy this can bring.

         Questions and quests. Answers you probably don't want to hear but will anyway. The cruelties of life a mirage to some, full-frontal assault for many. I ponder my existence daily, meditate upon the seemingly inconsequential, only to find out later the immensity one small action can do to influence others in a chain reaction. Cause and effect, action and consequence, karma if you subscribe to this theory. What of it, you say? Why not, and it's obvious, I reply to you.

         Poverty. Old institutions stripped and redefined. Endless wars one after the other. Subversion of beliefs and principles to a more ideal end for governments, monarchies and industrial imperialists. The people in the middle and lower stratas of society having to deal with the workings of the few. We are many. Ground down. Silenced. Ignored. Dispersed.

         This diaspora to lands of opportunity continue unabated. Dreams of a better life consume even the most placid of citizens. Another chance, a new life, new soil to work and landscape to suit one's desires.

         What of it? Is this revolution or a compromise? I say both and neither: Half-full, half-empty, an invisible vessel.

         Your call.

    Just read a + b = arse. the square root of.. and I must say I really enjoyed the surrealness of it all. I think the fact you wrote it in a hurry only helped the piece as it showed how your mind is a flurry and without taking time to temper the piece it's unadulterated chaos.

    I don't know if Dali wrote poetry but this is how I imagine he'd write albeit more straight laced compared to him :) Kinda like him doing another floppy watch picture, this poem seems like it would be in "Dali's Biggest Hits of Verse Book". Not a criticism by any means. Just pointing out he was more of a loon than you :)

    As for your thoughts on the Jeff Buckley title, I can see two ways of looking at it. The most obvious one stems from the fact that there is so much junk flying about the orbit and/or all the pollutants that are pumped into the atmosphere. Another slight more interesting way, in my opinion, is that usually when people look into the sky they become ponderous and it's like the sky is a dumping ground for all these thoughts that spring up while gazing skyward. My 2 cents but thanks for giving me something to think about.
