About this title

Synopsis:

From the paradox between biologic being and social doing, this poem takes the parallax view of biologic undoing and social un-being that join and condition consciousness to comfortably cling to false manifestations in emerging absences. As sublimation loses to softening in the fight over social claims, individual volition is willed to a power of powerlessness that silently accepts reprocessed heirlooms saturated in superficiality. Through the forward progression of years in reverse, rebellion and radicalism marked the times defined by history’s nonintellectual memory because those terms were easily discounted in the subsequent anti-movements that stepped back from the perceptions of dangerous. The beat stepped back and was lost in the limits of its own misunderstanding, suddenly self-convinced it was about irresponsible freedom. But the beat was about recognizing anti-freedom and taking responsibility for it. This poem was written on the beat’s old road with the windows rolled down.

About the Author:

With an Associate's degree in Social Science from a junior college in Columbia, KY, Ben entered the United States Army as a mortar man. Upon completion of his two-year enlistement, he completed a Bachelor's degree by double majoring in Creative Writing and Philosophy at the University of New Mexico. With that highly-desired mix of Mortar Man experience and Creative Writing/Philosophy education, Ben re-enlisted in the United States Coast Guard where he spent another 19.5 years of service before retiring in 2007. Along the way, Ben added an MBA in Quality Management and an MA in Educational Technology Leadership. After he retired (which, to the insightful, means behind schedule) Ben defended a dissertation, "Mindfulness in an Organizational Context" to earn his doctorate in Human and Organizational Learning from the George Washington University. Originally from Monticello, KY, Ben currently resides in Rio Rancho, NM with Katrina, his wife of 20-plus years, and their two sons, Shade (8) and Hudson (6).
