re * GRESS

Senior Project APRIL 2017

Riding currents through cutting-edge obelisks

spectral clouds of thought

fog paths and blur perception

Dissolved by deprivation,

infrangible golden threads

replaced by shiny, avid chords

which deliver to circuits

Grouping fruit,

as per tradition

genesis, growth, universalization, power retention,

then decay (et in terra)

Casting kaleidoscopic mirages of light, sustenance, and shelter

Abjure breath,

in exchange for uniforms

Sustain the ranks

till contention,

to idealism

bear no burden, nor brotherhood, nor land

From such fountains of delight

et in terra,

et in terra

Spectral clouds of thought

induce the primitive

while hissing in a panopticon, “violence is villainy”

Though heinous are collectivism, propagation, arrogance

Larger still,

the threat of tools of usurpers

the materialization of outrage and investment

Equated simply,

to mindless enmity

et in terra-

pax

From four squeaky wheels carved of millennia spanning material

emerge immense fallacies wrought of fragile paper

concealing a fashioned and warped wardrobe

filled with symbols of progression

All to goad arborescent minds

to weave gold

to know light
