The Whole Living Thing
From hunter/forager to stockbreeder/stockpiler,
A sustainable culture of substance requires a
Sensible agency for selfhood--a people process,
A method to stave off the madness:
An individual community is composed of core
Beliefs and ancestral objectives, contextual
Concepts that are transmogrified idiomatically
Into mysterious marvels.
A traditional ecological knowledge as transformed
Through trade and mercantilism via routes (trail,
River, sea, rail, road and air) are technological
Economic systems that expose crafted practicalities
To the developing world, and are expounded upon
As innovations, as possibilities, as leveraged by
Prospective capital, as tracked by (carbon) footprint.
The seller/buyer, innocent or arrogant, considers
The monetization of usage value and adopts/adapts
The appropriate appropriation, teaching/learning
Skill-focused suppositions through trial and error,
Showing the successes, the (re)search as proof.
Flow-charted communication (digitized) media,
Designed and engineered sources of information
Stimulate algorithmic competitive intelligence--
Dual purpose efficiencies and deficiencies; dynamic
Semi-sentient dreadfuls, costing pennies on the dollar,
Corral demographics to deal novelties, assist in
Auctioning authentic relics, peddle representations
Indicative of the Time and Age, those ghosted by the
Invisible hand, shadowed by the deep state.
If only for the subject matter, transaction criteria
Is based upon intellectual accordance, group-think
Harmony (both pride and shame), that which
Expresses a moral plea for personal reconciliation.
