Listen to a reading of this article: Don't let the fraudulence of this civilization eclipse the supernova of authenticity hidden just beneath that thin membrane. Don't let the vapid artificiality of mainstream culture cause you to miss the weird magic of life as it actually is.
"Don't let the deluge of lies and propaganda cause you to lose sight of the fact that they are trying to pour concrete over a bottomless abyss of truth."
I like this image: "Bottomless abyss of truth." I'm hopeful the deluge of lies and propaganda is going to end some day soon. Power to the people!
"Don't let the feigned confidence
of the people around you trick
you into thinking that any of
us really knows anything."

Thank you Caitlin, I am try very hard to see the magic around me amongst all the horror, when I'm down just a look at the wondrous sky or a smile from a stranger lifts me.
Sure I am drunk .. pissed as a rat .. but given the current circumstance why arent you?
What a beautiful newsletter. I feel a small hope for the first time in a long time. Cheers.
Your awakenss shines through and lifts my spirits! Bless you, thank you, Caitlin.
Another great poem! Thank you for sharing!
What a rare combination of poetry and explicit critical insight.
Well, you can't add anything to this. Keep smiling. And keep laughing. And keep applauding. We are the actors and audience in the drama we have created. It's great stuff: we have to keep up the momentum, and delay the finale for as long as possible.
Thank you! And so great that it was able to be listened to/audio.. Somewhat new to Twitter, and hearing this a treat. Will consider subscribing later.. just so many subscribes for now.
Very well said. "Just beneath" represents an enlightened journey.
Go thy great way!
The Stars thou meetst
Are even as Thyself -
For what are Stars but Asterisks
To point a human Life.
