Pedagogy for the Repressed

  Pedagogy for the Repressed  (Dialectic) 
My daily school work-program & service-
project depends on the grinding of strangers 
—the antagonism of others: resistance &
opposition of friends & neighbors so as to 
be trying to put IT in play, so as to see what
there is to see re the progress of contraries &
emerging values & phenomena rising like
mergansers from the truly engaged tangle &
tango of diverse points of viewing.  
*  Sooner murder an infant in its cradle than 
nurse un-acted desires, says Wm. Blake.
* Improvement makes strait roads, but the 
   crooked roads with out Improvement, are 
    roads of Genius.
* Where man is not, nature is barren.
*  Truth can never be told so as to be 
    understood, and not be believ'd.
*  Enough! or Too much.
*  If a fool persist  in his ways he becomes wise and
*  The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
Favorite proverbs bound to be mistaken,
knocking on the doors of homeland securities, 
threatening peace & stability in the popular
mind-set & body politic.
HOW is the wisdom of these our
humanities-division nostrums to be
recognized, seeing as they must go
against the reign?   Dia-bolical: 
throwing common sense across 
the rooms for play, so to speak.
EITHER such  verbal  pyrotechnical terrorist
tactics provoke & compel (turn them up,
put them in game), OR they threaten whirl
peace and measurable account-ability. 
Gut winces: signals my visceral turbulence
at the potential de-& reconstruction of  belief 

& bias, my systemic prejudicial convictions.
Demoralizing no  doubt, and who’s to say 
whether it’s ruin or renewal or beyond my
goodies & evils?
Risky business knocking  out the floors of
Miss Conceptions, abusing me to scan me;
I’ll have grounds more relative than these: 
the  PLAY's the thing  wherein to catch the 
conscience of the kin.
