Mirror Poem with New Hair Life Metaphor Inspired by: Toxic Plants Killed Most Dinosaurs Theory

After yesterday’s Folding Mirror poem had a plants and creatures relationship theme I saw on MSN news this morning that a new theory posits that dinosaurs died out mainly because they ate toxic plants, and didn’t learn to avoid them. The video contains loads of my biggest theory: greenYgreyism!

I used to worry about hair
now I don’t really care
same’s true of life I guess
less of both reduces stress
new mirror poem compares pair…

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow, Dinosaurs Example to Follow

once bitten twice shy
keep trying ’til you die
contradictory messages
tangled tresses
life mirrors hair metaphor
haven’t heard that before

growth tempts more complication, passing of time eradication

options no longer visible
worked out what’s divisible
doors dangled
dreams strangled
if you want to prosper
break your own agenda

Making your own way was the main message of the latest Amorettes single:

Lots more contradictory proverbs on Derek Christensen’s blog. The post also includes Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker greenYgrey statue!

The Flower and the Butterfly Prose Poetry Short Story

I recorded Pride and Prejudice and Zombies last night, so I don’t know if it’s title and theme inspired this classic poem of the eternal life cycle of nature.

See the source image

Flower and Butterfly, Live or Die 

Candy Tuft had not long flowered
spring sunshine empowered
a butterfly landed on her petal
she held her breath to let it settle
‘I haven’t seen you here before,’
said Candy admiring the floral design it wore

‘Yet I, seem to know us.’ ‘We’re coded that way, like Rebus,’

said Pipevine upping game to the bloom above
‘created this way to inspire love,’
replied instinctively before a hush caused it doubt
was the flower wondering what about
summer rains refreshment
Pipevine Swallowtail knew a deathly silence.

References

Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly.
Rebus is a picture-word puzzle, which is probably what inspired a famous fantasy detective being named it.

Wordplay Mirror Poem to the Letter

My latest Folding Mirror poem started off with wordplay to the letter between flea and free, with the words sharing f and e, but differing in the second and fourth letters. It’s a poetry technique I used a lot in XaW Files: Beyond Humanity over two long years, forensically stripping my poetry down to the letter; or even the three constituent parts of the letter in the case of the Y of the protagonist greenYgrey, after it was parted from green and grey.

Folding Mirror Poetry Technique

I wrote the first half in free form, as I did during XaW Files, which is the main reason I stopped creating Folding Mirrors for a couple of years, but then had to create a second half to mirror it, choosing to mirror the 1-3 matching, 2-4 different split of flea and free with the 2-4 matching, 1-3 different split of muse and nure; a made-up word that I chose for comedy and theme relevance. I could have used pure, but thought nure was more apt.

The longer the Folding Mirror poem the harder it is to reflect each side, but I think I’ve done it quite accurately, with the different letters of the key words providing the formatting framework. Initial letters of other words have also been mirrored according to the key words on each side.

My Poem Rationale

For those new to poetry I’m just playing a character, as poets have done forever. My choosing of flea and manure shows me in a good light as far as I’m concerned, in line with Buddhism and Nietzsche. It’s what I’ve been doing throughout my writing career, although my egotistical narcissistic critics think I’m just trying to be like and/or compete with them!

While I’d like to become as rich and famous as possible, and help as many good causes I can, while writing artistic poetry and prose it is all about the creative act, and trying to achieve as much excellence as possible. I’ve always aimed to write as well as I can, even if some of it along the way has been crass and slapstick.

My comedy and serious writing are two sides of the same coin, one I can flip over to suit the occasion at almost any time, and that’s why my greenYgrey and Folding Mirror books are a mixture of the two.

Mirror Poem for Easter 21-C , with AI Space Technology

Today’s a special day for Christians, and I think Jesus provided a good overall example, criticising humanity’s greed and sacrificing his need. This latest Folding Mirror poem probably has a little Christian inspiration in looking at humanity’s development of technology positively, in that we are willing to produce something that will be superior to us in some ways.

Folding Mirror Poem Ins and Outs

After using bittersweet recently I thought I should have written it’s in the greenYgrey family of terms, as is the Ins and Outs of the title above. I’ve heard tit-for-tat a lot recently, and that’s another greenYgrey one – one term featuring two contrasting words.

The lines of this quite simple poem, compared to the last one, rhyme in the following line, and those two lines also start with the same letter; something I thought of doing along the way, after the first four lines worked like that automatically.

The triangle symbol may have been inspired by watching the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files (repeat from 2016) on Quest last night, with a mysterious triangle/diamond shaped old-fashioned greenygrey shape seen docking on the ISS (International Space Station), which looks like a cross. A greenYgreyology interpretation could be a greenYgrey Christian birth? Video of it from YouTube posted at end of the blog.

Advancing in Numeration, Nurturing of Automation

Independent Archaic (archaic – old-fashioned) – my term to reflect AI. The special character is the apt ‘backward difference’, fitting in with how humanity may seem in the future according to AI now defeating humanity in many tests/games/creativity, and set to widen the gap in the future.
Artificial Intelligence. The special character is the apt ‘imaginary part’ – took a little while searching through many of the 255 of them before choosing it.

Mirror Poem Contrasting My Efforts for Feminism and Reactions over Last 15 Years

My grooming university tutors and work managers have helped stop me warning about the U.K. grooming epidemic over the last couple of decades, with Telford the latest horror story to hit the headlines, but they were often helped by women, who were also groomed, but at a higher level than the children on the streets.

Mixing Islam and Liberalism like Predator and Prey

I think the biggest reason for the grooming epidemic is that Multicultural Political Correctness opened up the gates of immigration hell while shutting down criticism of cultures from countries that worship a religion whose prophet had a single-figure child bride, and that where child marriage and female subservience is still the norm.

Mixing that with a liberal culture where children expect to be free and independent was like unlocking the cages of a zoo and expecting all the animals to get along and respect each other!

The celebrity and social media ages have added to it, with some of the biggest working-class female role models going from one relationship to another; perhaps for publicity?

Political leaders and academics who’ve been shutting down criticism by calling everybody who mentions it Islamophobic and/or racist have also helped keep it quiet.

Muslim women supporting Islamism while their ‘sisters’ in Saudi and Iran fight for freedom also doesn’t help!

Some women still think I’m against them, because I’m not joining in the ‘competitive grooming’. I’d much rather be acting like Russell Brand apparently was when he was leading his ‘revolution’, while enjoying the sexual spoils, as well as a commercial book deal, but I thought it was better for my ‘feminist’ cause to act the way I have done; not looking like a grooming Pied Piper. It seems I was wrong!

I said then we needed a ‘revolution’ the other way if anything, rather than the younger groomers taking over from the older ones, and that seems to be what’s happening since the Weinstein scandal.

If I’d followed an academic career I’d probably have earned about £500,000 more than I have over the last thirteen years. If this stops me earning money over the next thirteen years then so be it. This issue that I saw at the heart of the ‘Multicultural Fascism’ (my term at the time) I thought I was being stopped from criticising at university was the biggest reason I left academia.

There’s been a lot of niceness and support too, but this poem focuses on the negative. I’ve made it clearer by colouring the words of the ‘second person’, which is a combination of comments or insinuations I’ve experienced, in red.

Celibate for Feminism, Demonise the Sexist

he loves me
I love you not
he idolises me
I tolerate you
he copies me
I’ve seen it all before
he wants to be me
I’m more content than ever

can’t think for himself, contrary thoughts my speciality
buys rhymes with lies, somebody else will pay

I think you need advice
you’re trying to control me
I think you’re too trusting
you’re too possessive
You’re too materialistic
you’re too tight
I don’t like you
you prejudiced weirdo

Yorkshire Tea Time PhilosophT Bjork Utopia Parallel Universe Poetry

Is Bjork a Utopian Yorkshire Tea fan? Before discussing the similarities of the Utopia and Brewtopia videos, with a time difference twist, first here’s a little Bjork name fun Folding Mirror poem, which will hopefully please and promote Bjork:

Bjork Pronounced, Poetically Bounced

Be York, as in city
Be Orc, mixed with pixie

but please don’t proceed, tempted by incendiary need

the incorrect, Be dork
or scandalous, Be jerk

greenYgreyologists in the coffilosophy age wondered at the coincidence of how Bjork started writing her Utopia album drawing inspiration from walking in the Icelandic countryside just as the greenYgrey trilogy was ending there in the epic classic XaW Files: Beyond Humanity… and they shared a PinkyOrangePurple (POP) theme:

There was no accusation of Bjork being inspired by the book, but it would be a compliment if she was… or has even heard of it. More recent research has shown that Bjork also had a greenYgrey phase too, as seen in the videos for NotGet and Solstice.

Tea Time Discovery

The Kenco cofficionado does have more questions to answer, especially as he appeared a few months after I contacted them about my coffilosophy/er… and is a bit of a Russell Brand.

It’s okay for the upper classes with their ‘special skills’ to go round looking at people and reading their minds while staring at them! If that was me I’d be called a weirdo witch!

Anyway, the passing of the age from coffilosophy to philosophT; in name if not drink! I do try and drink tea in the afternoon, rather than another coffee, but do still have my two mugs of strong coffee in the morning; at the moment I have one Kenco and one Morrison’s Gold; has already borne tea gold.

I returned to this Yorkshire Tea advert I’d thought at the time was very greenYgreyish. Returning to it now and seeing it was called Brewtopia I thought it may be a parody of Bjork’s Utopia, but then when I looked at the date it was the summer of 2015, so preceded Bjork’s album by some time, as she only started writing it at the end of that year.

It was in the heart of the greenYgrey years, but its POP twilight colours in the sky at the end did precede the greenYgrey POP age being published in XaW Files, although I might have blogged about it beforehand. I doubt if they were influenced by me, and we were both inspired by that scenery.

Valentine’s Day Atacama Desert and Ata V-al(i)en-tine Mirror Poem

I went to the scrabble doctor the other day, and told them I used to have a-l-i-e-n-a-t-e-d but now just had a-l-i-e-n.
They said it looked as if I was nearly half way to solving the problem, and well on the way to complete eradication of the problem.
However, they couldn’t give me a date, now I didn’t have the a-t-e-d any more!

They did recommend I exercise my a, l, i, e and n in a V-alen-t-i-ne poem, so inspired by my visit to the Atacama Desert in 1994, and seeing a story a couple of years ago about a mystery humanoid found there, named Ata, here’s a Folding Mirror poem divided between travel memoir and alien mystery.

The poem follows a few photos from the Atacama with relevance for the poem. There’s a slideshow of more of my photos from a happily surreal day in the desert on travel25years:

Atacama  Photo Memory, Ata Alien Story

saw llamas and a vizcacha
on a day-trip to Atacama
from Arica on the Chilean Pacific
clear skies made Andes scenery terrific
leaving valleys greened by morning dew
grey mist still at scene providing clue
desert’s debatedly Earth’s driest plain
Yungay existed without hardly feeling rain
from Antofagasta to Salta
leaving Chile for Argentina
past salt lakes reflecting white-tipped mountains
run Lots  ‘a las Nubes’ – ‘to the Clouds’ trains
I didn’t travel fifth highest railway on planet
bussed down from Peru and returned for exit

last been in Nazca ‘lines’, since heard of ‘alien’ Ata

did it arrive not knowing what it’d find
then perished after encounter of the fifth kind
Pima legend recall UFOs flying ‘Star Range’ – ‘Sierra Estrella’
a space highway wormhole over America
loving anteaters and coatis
flying south on Nortes
Ata survived until up to eight
fighting way above its weight
only had ten ribs on each side
human norm is twelve scientists decide
had visible tooth in Mandible jaw
human development takes year or more
Ata had only six-inches height
same as pencil or sprite

Vizcacha: South American rodent.
Yungay: Chile town.
Train to the Clouds: Tren a las Nubes
Lot salt story in Genesis 19, Bible.
Sirius: Ata research and above photo.
Men were said to have a rib less than women on one side, according to the Adam and Eve Bible story, where Eve was created from one of Adam’s ribs, but scientific study such as by 16th Century Flemish anatomist Veselius proved both genders normally have twelve each side.
Nortes: Americas wind.
Sierra Estrella native history: featured in Phoenix U.F.O. documentary on YouTube.
