Fulfillment

Epiphany 4 - Year C

today
fulfills the past
our infancy is revisable
fulfillment erases
all manner of memory
fulfillment displaces
any and all limits

There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face . . . for ever. [1984]

today
begins tomorrow
our future is caste
fulfillment completed
erase faith
fulfillment fulfilled
displace hope
soma is enough

There's always soma to calm your anger, to reconcile you to your enemies, to make you patient and long-suffering. In the past you could only accomplish these things by making a great effort and after years of hard moral training. Now, you swallow two or three half-gramme tablets, and there you are. Anybody can be virtuous now. You can carry at least half your morality about in a bottle. Christianity without tears - that's what soma is." [Brave New World]

today
reveals continuums
our present vibrates
fulfillment awaits
love's dance
fulfillment makes room
engaging gifts
face-to-face
