There is little for the timid or weak of heart. Nor will the optimist find much grist for his or her mill. There are sparks, but not of hope. They are the kind which start disagreements ending in red-mist. Driven, too far, without reason. Scarred, too early, without resolution. Inside there may be insight, but there is nothing to envy in viewing the world from this man's point of view.

Is poetry just a term for the highly refined and concentrated use of language, or can it also be a spiritual practice? What might the poetry of an alien civilization or an artificial intelligence be like?

There's not a suggestion in here how to solve the problems of insane cruelty so rampant in our societies - that is left to the readers' imaginations. "Why a Hermit?' and "The Truth-Tellers" illustrate the effects of the toppling of our Dreams.

No adult-only content.
