Learning to discriminate

what i used to know
compared to what i presently
know differs immensely.
how does one’s conception
of another depend upon their
notion of a deity,
or what side,
left or right,
they support,
or what their
sexual orientation is,
or what race they
belong to?
how come now,
all these pervasive
filters seem to
garner such sway
upon ones disposition?
pleasure of time passed
becomes victim of
discriminatory reexamination.


Investing in a loss

i possess no equity
so i can’t afford insurance
therefore, i have no benefits
appraisal of value marks nil
nor can it be assigned
estimated use, however,
means a gain for an other
of which both ends equal
embrace the transaction for
it builds self-consolidation
