Arcana

It is not surrender
to plane limbs together.

Spread arms to
summon sunshine,
dig to drink
morning dew.

Fire sweetens sap above and below.
When Sun succumbs to Sea there is no smoke.

Floating Jaw


Head wrapped in hush,
drifting slowly down
Acheron.

Dreamt rivers of fire
washed my jaw's 
basin clean

As Sirens fastened their mouths
against the salty gale.

Tidyll



Waves break high
in bright foam
and crash
to dark hollows.


Resonance sighs worlds
over the mist's
hypnotic undulation.


Our first cry to light
Cresting 'til we break
into greater darkness.

Balzac, Maupassant and the New Church

In the Novels of Balzac, La Comedie Humaine, we see
the power of Bankers and Financiers wielding a Sword of
Damocles over the Ministers and Governments of France.
In "The Bureaucrats" one minister loses his livelihood by
daring to attempt a reform by cutting excessive waste in
Government. He is sacked by the combined efforts of financiers,
bureaucrats and journalists who profit from the arrangement.

Maupassant's "Bel-Ami" is a political novel about Journalism,
Finance and Government forming an Unholy Trinity of
Speculative Profiteering which dictates the policy of Third
Republic France. The protagonist is an amoral journalist.

Add "Globalism" and we have the Bankers and Financiers making
runs and profiteering on entire continents and modern nations. A
piously fraudulent legitimacy is given by the UN, but only when a
paved hell of profitable intentions, Austerity Measures, are yoked
onto the people by the IMF. The new Benedictines ask the people,
not themselves, to be ascetic and don the hair-shirt.

The Mother Church is now Banking and Finance. The Faith is
Speculative Capital. It takes the real treasures of laborers the
world over and lays them up in the blossoming Mystic Rose of
a beautifully full and abstracted balance sheet. Marx's adage is
proven: "Nothing makes money like money." His complex
theory of the accumulative centralization of capital is immediately
visible on a Global Scale, but treated as obscene(in the classical,
Greek, sense--Off the stage). This centralization becomes more
pronounced in Speculative(i.e. Liquid Capital Based) Economies.


This Theological Economy is never questioned by Political and
Journalistic Vassals.
