you were made from fixed nitrogen
implicit ideas
raiders attracted to the flames
culture is a knowledge relationship
the Divine Port, the Sublime Port
reservoirs of knowledge
game theory vs. just happy to be here
the older gay, the senior gay
culture, symbolic thought, language

the interesting 40-year old
the senior gay
the origins of symbolic thought
fish and fish hooks
a symbol that stood in for an entire culture
constrained meaning
Rich Dad, Everybody’s Uncle
with faith and trust and confidence
Dos Equis and Stella Artois

embryonic, the cosmic womb
the power to create life
the symbols of a culture
embrace complexity, embrace rapture
the upside-down triangle, the yoni
she’s you
they share the same genes
it turned into Minecraft
the gift of the earth

in competition for your niche
papercuts and Band-Aids
chocolate-covered chicken
purification, clarification
The Unstated
happiness is blue, blue in blue
to feel and to live forever
you’re on an iceberg, floating out to sea
between heaven and earth

and still, no one cares
saying goodbye to your younger self
completely buried under history
