The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Axis Mundi (Mythic May Vol. 10)

"History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers ... what we need is a new myth, what we need is a new true story that tells us where we're going in the universe and that true story is that the ego is a product of pathology ..."

Axis Mundi

Oh Enkidu — lead us lost humans
Back to those ancient forests
Beyond these cities' woes
Mankind be won by nature!

For we've seen from space
The damage we're wreaking
Upon Gaia's gorgeous face
A virus threatens humanity's place

Our technology ought to be wed
To the ecology, 'til all are fed
So that we might learn by analogy
The actual function of spiritual symbology

As it stands, nothing is sacred
Virgin mother desecrated, splayed naked
How can anything evolve in isolation?
Mistaken domination brings about damnation!

Lo Enkidu — we humans verge on extinction
There's not enough identifying (only distinction)
Poetry is powerless to move
People who refuse to improve.

Image: Gilgamesh mourning his friend and equal, Enkidu (who was created by the gods to help him).
