Book of Three Rings Poem 4 'TARTARUS'

TARTARUS

Opening out, I celebrate
at the Self of you.

For you are so wide open,
wide as all the world.

While all I do is drown in you:
Deeper…in still deeper;

until I couldn’t cast a fig
for that unutterable ‘why’

that brought me to this place-
of darkness and ecstasy.

No longer need to understand.
You only are the world.

In your soft arms,
Hades actually smiles.

The Coalition of the Willing-Superb Animated Film about the new environmentalism. Please watch it!

Watch The Film





‘Coalition of The Willing’ is a film that discusses how we can use new internet
technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens
in collaborative ventures to combat climate change. Through analyses of swarm
activity and social revolution, ‘Coalition of the Willing’ makes a compelling case
for the new online activism and explains how to bring the fight against
global warming to the people.  As the film tackles the subject of online activism,
we decided that the logical home for ‘Coalition of The Willing’ is here online.
Between the start of February and the beginning of June 2010, Coalition of the 
willing was released in sections onto this website. Groups of sections were
released roughly every 2-3 weeks, with the final completed film going online
at the start of June. This un-conventional release strategy allowed us to build
and engage with an audience whilst the film itself was being made. “coalitionfilm”
has now become an online environmental brand in itself, with contributors Tweeting
and Facebooking every day about issues discussed in the film; environmentalism,
open source culture and swarm politics.

"I'm a Mac ... and I've Got a Dirty Secret"-A little word about 'conflict minerals'.

Get up to speed about conflict minerals.
Hello, I'm a Mac, and I'm helping fuel the war in the Congo -- the deadliest war in the world. So are PCs, cell phones, digital cameras and other electronics. That's what Apple's famous ads don't tell you. So actor/activist Brooke Smith and cinematographer Steven Lubensky teamed up with actors Joshua Malina and John Lehr to create a version that sets the record straight.

The true meaning of being a slave

Not to speak up when you see injustice about you.
To keep silent through fear.
To walk by when the weak and the poor are assaulted by power and ill-used by thuggery whether of the commons or of the state.
To put the comfort of salary before the insecurities of conscience.
To speak like reasoned honey and act like a coward.
To tug the forelock while the abusers of the planet roil in luxury.
To press down rage and turn it into servitude.
Not to see the golden threads that connect each to each.

To be concerned with mere money and to understand nothing of value.
To be known as 'a safe pair of hands.'
To be endlessly corruptible.



That, truly, is what it means to be a slave.

BOOK OF THREE RINGS-POEM 3

THE SEX-DREAMS OF CLAUDIUS AND GERTRUDE

He gets the shakes when she’s close,
her beauty burns his eyes.
Clarity of fire within the green!

She parts her lips-he almost faints.
What arid fumes arise
when the book-spine cracks?

She seizes him in her white arms!
Her breasts are stirred and flecked!
She lands on him like Zeus on Leda!

The red skeins in her hair weave tales
of wildness and of chaos.
The sea is sounding in his shell.

She reaches up and is revealed:
A Selkie and a Siren,
smooth as dew-kissed moss.

Her dusky peaches softly glow,
he holds one in each hand.
Such surprising balance!

Within the blessing of the grove,
by a yielding forest pool,
he reaches deep inside

And throws:

His beating heart all bloodied at
her feet of slippered clay
and shouts his plea through grit:

Queen of the Night! Let me be the one
you’ll take to your chamber of gold.
That very secret, sacred space.

Cut me with your flinty knife!
Drain me of my blood!
And I will frame your hidden moon,

And stand where your husband stood.
