The pulse
The repulse
The impulse
The compulse
Driving beats
Propelling existence
Attracting and repelling
Gravity and friction
The diction of experience.
What repulses you about yourself
Hardens your heart to similar others
What attracts you to yourself
Softens your heart to similar others
(Totalitarian regimes insult
The totalitarian subterfuge of elections)
Whatever is happening
There is One.
In any propulsion instrument
The necessity is boundary
Surface tension,
Insulation and non- adulteration.
Oil and water need a gasket
Electricity needs cable, fuse and terminals
Fusion needs reactor chamber and coolants.
Insulation,
If the insulation breaks down,
The pulse stops.
Healing is wholing.
The hole you’re in is missing a ‘w’.
What is your double you?
It is the ‘my’ and the ‘not my’
Held together in an insulation.
It is the ‘my’ and the ‘e-ne-my’
Held together in an insulation.
It is the ‘my’ and the ‘enemy’
Held together in an insulation.
What is insulation?
Love is insulation
Love makes the hole whole.

What is war?
War is the deliberate removal
The deliberate removal
Of an ‘e’
The deliberate removal
Of one letter
That makes ware, war.
Beware or be war.
Cherish your human wares
Or destroy the double you
In insisting upon your financial ‘ares’.
So the important letters here
The letters that are deliberately removed
By frightened little people
Projecting their own animosity
Amplifying their own ambition,
The letters that are ripped out of the heart
That turn ware to war and wares to ares,
WE.
I am the first person singular
I am the first person plural.
