    shit forms                                                  
 
the food that comes inside of us, goes out like shit coming out from our mouth. a gun facing us cocked with hollow point shit discharged at us forcing me to eat those ... shit forms - from nothing into something, from something into nothing. processing it, storing it, defecating it and mostly not minding it. excrements inside of us are compiling us, and though we don’t like the looks of it we thrive on it.

radiance
 
we all have radians inside, we all glow, radiating a stream of energy bearing elementary particles, coming out of some source and spreading in a certain direction, one or more. it's possible we radiant as a cycle interference or as a wave coming out of a certain source spreading in space. could it be we radiant in a level which is dangerous for our body or the bodies of others? the energy that we emit could burn? could be carcinogenic? destroy the cellular structure? create a genetic modification? kill? Like the radiance of the beautiful sun from which we should take care, like the splitting of a uranium atom or the fusion of an hydrogen cell which react so severely? could it be such a thing as a bad glow, degrees of darkness, a negative value of radiance? maybe…
it seems to me that light and darkness is within you beautiful girl and it's obvious what makes you glow, but in order to see your darkness one need to stare into your glowing eyes like rays of sun, blinding, scorching my eyes. but with the smell of gunpowder we can see your arms discharging a bullet and despite the smell of fire we can still see the emission of your hard rays and to feel how the darkness spreads from you… from a certain source… energy bearing… cycle interfering… a wave… in space… from you to me…

when i stopped hunting i started growing because i wanted control over my land, my food, my world for me, divinity for me the earth was made, peak of creation, in the image of the story that i wrote. i wanted the food to be mine, always with me. i don’t want to see how my meat dies i just want to eat it, so i let them grow it, process it - my land, my meat, my nature, so i can eat and live easily, so the food will get through me, processed in me, discharged through circular muscles at the end of me into pipeline systems under the city into the sea, the beautiful sea.

“although we rationally know what goes on with the excrements, the imaginary mystery nonetheless persists - shit remains an excess with does not fit our daily reality, and lacan was right in claiming that we pass from animals to humans the moment an animal has problems with what to do with its excrements, the moment they turn into an excess that annoys it.”

this food is the gift of the whole universe, each morsel is a sacrifice of life, may I be worthy to receive it. may the energy in this food, give me the strength, to transform my unwholesome qualities into wholesome ones. i am grateful for this food, may i realize the path of awakening, for the sake of all beings. namo amida buddha.
