What do you microcosm-dwellers want now?

Comfort-zones shelter you from any clear view

We supplied all of the demands you made blind

Go enjoy everything your fingers fine-tuned

Drink every over-marketed and synthetically-concocted hype-juice

Go stew in cult-indoctrinated perceptions of your gains as grave loss

Preach all the Churchianity you can liturgize, and share your bad breath

Go fail to learn how everything is informative in terms of real truth

Let legitimate dialogue culminate

Let us cultivate ways to conciliate

Interpersonal rhythms and counterpoint

Let a synchronization be imminent

Any unknown quantity can have a spectacular aura on a distinguished road

All of your mind-viruses are munching on all the perceptiveness that you ever had

Theodivine angels, with their halos and wings and polyphony, are proclaiming joy

Earth is our home orbiting the sun, and we focus on everything that is plain and dry

Let me die a death more meaningful than all of your farts in my general direction

Let me die a death more meaningful than misunderstandings and confusion

Let me die a death more meaningful than purchases and retail

Let me die a death more meaningful than worshipping Mammon and the devil

Life is lonely ahead of the curve

Friends forsake you for having the nerve

Kindred-spirits are friends who remain

Tribulations can thicken our skin

Stress is a jalapeno-pepper on the soul’s tongue

Whether or not it bears repeating that we live “wrong”

Weirdophobes, you who micromanage the entire world

You who demand to have an impact, and to feel good

You have no afterthoughts, or even one clue

What do you microcosm-dwellers want now?

  1. We are indeed microcosm dwellers in our own ways and we are often stuck here with people we’d rather not. We do sometimes need to go outside our comfort zones to live a fuller life, but this is inherently hard to do. Hype-juice! Love that. We do seem to be fed that a lot these days don’t we? It is always interesting how you interweave religious imagery, it gives things a thought-provoking nature to what you are trying to say. Share your bad breath! It is a good way to describe how things can be imposed upon us sometimes against our will. These lines are quite profound: “Interpersonal rhythms and counterpoint / Let a synchronization be imminent”. If only we could attain this, we’d all be better off. We can all aspire to have a “spectacular aura on a distinguished road.” We are all just searching for meaning in our lives. I could not agree with you more, life is lonely ahead of the curve. You convey well the concept of being left behind when others are not understanding of another’s situation. Ok, I swear, this is the most interesting way to describe stress that I have ever heard: : Stress is a jalapeno-pepper on the soul’s tongue”! The repetition of the last line wraps up the message well and reiterates it anew.
