Work Order, 2016


blooming blooming

fruiting fruiting

Work is tangled between disordered sheets of paper covering a desk

Trapped in envelopes and receipts the drugery

Takes time to unravel, the benefits illusory

Piles of time seated in one place stuck firmly to slavery grotesque

Punching an invisible time clock, the hours drain slowly as we recheck

The mission we set out to accomplish which has dissolved into tomfoolery

Does each worker, in a separate way, discover workplace dysfunction peculiarly?

Our ancestors toiled in primitive times, without electicity, running water, or tech

What is the goal of work today as we compare it to history?

We live to work, not work to live, and thus rob ourselves of mystery

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
