What Is Is

is what grows out of repression
of natural sexual attraction

see all the lovely flowers
become sterile
see all the lovely stamens
become dysfunctional
women become articifically inseminated
men pop pills to become functional

when love is aldalterated
it becomes war
what is illicit becomes desired
both in homos and hetros

when normal bodily functions
becomes gross in polite society
they become fodder
for blue collar humor and shame
for the elderly and the very young

when compassion becomes sterlized
humans become addicted to drama
then personal wars and international wars
become the desired daily diet

“If war does not become extinct,
humans will become extinct.”
– Buckminster Fuller
