medical paraphernalia ~ GET VACCINATED

’cause of my conditions
~ lyme disease
~ asthma
~ a paralyzed right diaphragm
~ muscular dystrophy
I’ve become
this pack-rat
a curmudgeon ~ collecting
all sorts of
medical paraphernalia
that at times
seems like
a real
pain in my ass
and yet …..
such medical paraphernalia
sustains my life
keeps me in the game
they improve my odds
regardless of
my shortness of breath
and crappy condition

I view the Covid-19 vaccines
in the same way …..
why oh why
would anyone refuse
to take advantage of them  ~

peace out

GET VACCINATED

Image and Words by  ~Keith Alan Hamilton~

one shot at a time

a pandemic world
weighs heavy
on my spirit
day after day
the virus persists
sublimely claiming
souls
and leaving
behind pain
laced with sorrow …..

only the hope
of a vaccine
as this scientific
and galactic
stormtrooper
gloriously fighting
the battle
one shot at a time
that
lifts humanity up
to a climactic end
and the sweet smell
of victory
sustains me

peace out

my choice

as I sit
in seclusion
the pandemic
roars around me
like a hungry lion
I have limited
choices
as far as movement
beyond my walls
of confinement
my condition
due to a health condition
worsens my chances
to survive the virus
if it finds me
when I leave my space
it’s like walking
in space
with a space suit
I have to mask up
and keep my distance
so others
and myself
have less a chance
of getting sick
in spite of my efforts
to be considerate
and kind to others
my choice
I see others
still gathering in groups
not keeping distance
or wearing masks
sadness overcomes me
for my fellow humans
as I sit
in seclusion
the pandemic
roars around me
like a hungry lion

peace out

the future norm

confined to home
for about a year
now
out of sight
like cargo
stowed away
in the hold
of a ship
held at sea
from entering
a port

a virus
stands before
a door
back to a life
said to be normal
the way it was before

ME
I
have doubts
about what
will be thought
to be normal
in the days to come
MY
intuition
shrouded in
pandemic
apprehension
FEELS
that the VIRUS
will be a part
of the future norm

peace out

pandemic reclusiveness …..

pandemic reclusiveness …..
COVID-19 shut-in ~
facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy
restrictive lung decease
carbon monoxide
polluted
diminished
diffusing capacity
exasperated by …..
sucks like HELL
behind a mask
asphyxiation ~

I’ve been wrapped up
in myself ~ LOL

peace out !

PEACE the FUCK OUT COVID-19

COVID-19…..
PEACE the FUCK OUT
I never liked Corona
anyhow
Heineken
was my preference
you make
an old man
wear a mask
that makes his glasses
fog up…..
I wink at you
out of spite
your occurrence
I wrote about
in my book
Nature ~ IQ
Let’s Survive, Not Die !
seven or so
years ago
and yet
We the People
of planet earth
defy you
you weren’t
smart enough
to know
We the People
will
bond together
through thick and thin
to fight you
’cause We the People
of planet earth
are the adaptive kind
you may
beat us down
but
we will
flick you the bird
then
stand back up
and survive

PEACE the FUCK OUT
COVID-19…..

the HUMAN-KIND ~ I am a believer !

the HUMAN-KIND
an evolving species
capable of
creative acts….   producing
everything
from bad
all the way to
the good
some would say
the HUMAN-KIND
is
inherently
evil
yes
there are
those naysayers
and doomsayers
that seemingly focus
on the misdeeds
of humanity …..   failing
to note or recall
the positive
and productive acts
that helped to
evolve and sustain
the human species
through time …..
often
the way
one human
sees another
or views
a group of humans
from bad
all the way to
the good
appears limited
by the filtering process of
social conditioning
a tunnel vision effect
experienced
while living
with a limited amount
of humans
or specific groups
of humans
socially fenced off
from other humans
behind the barriers of race  ~
skin color   ~   sex   ~   gender
nationality   ~   ethnicity
culture   ~   belief
and economic status
divisions stirring
a dis-ease
between factions of
the HUMAN-KIND
a tea like drink
steeped to the brim
with predisposition
inhibition
and stereotype
infectious ingredients
that brew societal ills

despite such
factors and conditions
the HUMAN-KIND
through my eyes
as a self-proclaimed
Mystic Visionary
Spiritual Warrior
Pro-Human …..   Social Activist
Performance Artist   ~

I am a believer…..
in the HUMAN-KIND

the vision and intent
behind my positive
pro-human
proactive message
as it pertains
to this matter of belief
in the HUMAN-KIND

I now quote my own prose…..

“This idea of KIND,  where humanity ultimately becomes more fully aware of its Kind, THE HUMAN-KIND !  The one and only realization of a Kind by its KIND, regardless the diverse labels of race, skin color, sex, gender, nationality, ethnicity, culture, belief or economic status.  Where ONE KIND, We the people of planet earth set aside our differences and unitedly focus on one objective, the future survival of ALL THE HUMAN-KIND.  Spiritually as a collective, We the people need to envision the wisdom and benefit of working together to increase the overall well-being of all humanity.   A collective conscious, transitional process of spiritual awareness that proactively co-creates a social environment of global healing through the non-violent direct action of OPEN DIALOGUE.   A proactive way of communication that leads to a peaceful coexistence among We the people of planet earth and the everlasting preservation of THE HUMAN-KIND.”

“If expecting tolerance to be learned by others, then through example the tolerant, should patiently exhibit tolerance for those learning to be tolerant; even if, the intolerant are becoming tolerant, a lot slower than what is expected by the tolerant; how else should the tolerant expect the intolerant to learn tolerance?”

create social change
through Non-violent
Direct Action
initiate learning
and development
by way of the peaceful
and healing process
of Open Dialogue

peace out

grant and then guarantee

We the people
of the One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
must see the wisdom
and benefit to all
in continually striving
to grant and then
guarantee
each and every
individual
regardless of
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
or belief
the liberty
to exercise freedom
through an
adaptively
resilient
transitional
and transformational
process
of intelligent
progression
similar to the butterfly
from cocoon
to flight. ……
……. experience fully
the right of choice
equality
and justice
for all
therein
the co-evolutionary
creation of
a social environment
where all
groups formed
comprised of
individuals
grown in liberty
will reap the blessings
of freedom as well

peace out

must become Pro-Human

The Human-Kind
The One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
We the people
of planet earth…..

must become Pro-Human
work together
have the wisdom
envision the purpose
and foresee the benefit
despite the odds
in creating
a human environment
that leads to an
Independence Day
celebrated by all……

The Human-Kind
The One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
We the people
of planet earth

where the right of choice
equality
and justice
is a reality for everyone

PRO-HUMAN with a PROACTIVE belief

as a mystic philosopher
who spiritually
is PRO-HUMAN
with a PROACTIVE belief
in only One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
regardless of
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
or belief
I fervently
hope and pray
THE HUMAN RACE
through the lived experience
of an intelligently
progressive
transitional
and transformational
process of
enlightenment
will envision
see the wisdom
to satisfy
the spiritual need
for acceptance
of each other
and that
a healing for all
could occur through
the communicative
process
of open
dialogue   ~
~   the bringing back to light
out of the darkness
all hidden
and suppressed
predispositions
and inhibitions
causing
the dis-ease
of social ills
so We the people
The Human-Kind
of The One Race
on planet earth
THE HUMAN RACE
can willingly
and mutually
within a cooperative
spirit
of unconditional love
set
aside
our differences ….
to find ways to improve
the overall well-being of   ~
~   ALL HUMANITY
with the spiritual intent
to create a social environment
that will emerge …..
as a quote from the introduction
of the book Nature ~ IQ:
Let’s Survive,
Not Die !
– Adaptive Transitioning says ~

A happy, healthy, prosperous and informed humanity is then more hopeful, confident, self-sufficient and more a productive contributor to society. This improved overall well-being for the people is the primer that ignites a more positive mindset about the gift of life being lived to its fullest potential. A more worry free state of being, frees the mind of the people from the burden of day to day ills. The more open and clear the mind is with less distraction, helps the people see the wisdom for becoming united and focused through a commonality in purpose, the survival of humanity. We the people as a whole will then be more willing and able to set aside the differences between us that the trials and tribulations of life have exacerbated. This shared purpose with a clear vision, the preservation of the human species, spirited on by an improved well-being will help the people to not only want to take a more active role in life, but be more proactive in our efforts.

peace out

how I wish for . …
how I long for…..
how I remember
the breeze
wistful
but comforting
as it blew
through the window
of my childhood room
in the afternoon
of a warm …
sunny
day
when summer
felt more familiar
and more reliable
where the smell
of a hard rain
across the soil
seemed rejuvenating
the way
the nature gods
had designed it to be
unlike the present ~
the seasons
like summer
its timely pattern
of occurrence
its form of weather
appear out of wack
to me anyhow
no longer a boy
this aged man
and yet ~
how I wish for…..
how I long for…..
how I remember
the breeze

peace out

this or that
here or there
where is
the head to toe
the length
and breadth
of the matter  ~
you know
all the stuff
in between …..
we can’t learn
to get from
point A
to point B
without
experiencing
and understanding
the middle ……
so why then
the impatient
and intolerant
response to  ~
Black Lives Matter …..
….. with
All Lives Matter  ~
firstly
don’t we need
acceptance
and then healing
through
the communicative
process
of open
dialogue  ~
the bringing back to light
out of the darkness
all hidden
and suppressed
predispositions
and inhibitions
causing
the dis-ease
of social ills
so we can
collectively
air out and release
all pain
sorrow
and regrets
to successfully
let go
get past
and move on …..
intelligently  ~
progressively
transitioning
as a people
along the road
of enlightenment
and human
transformation
yes we can
and must …..

peace out

#3

I AM me
you ARE you
ain’t the
right
to choose
what
really
matters  ~
equality
and justice
for each
and every
person
the individual
ain’t that
the answer
to the riddle
called
freedom  ~

peace out
