The Parable of “Java Man Evolutionary Filters”

Metal was first of course.                                                 Things ground away.
White paper was finer.                                          Things ground away.
Brown was greener.                                  Things ground away.
Metal foil bonded to plastic frames survived well.
A    c o m p a c t    plastic    cup
with    synthetic    filter
beneath  foil  seal
holding  grounds
all  disposable
is  better

Filter evolution midst a green revolution yields little clarification.

Reflections On The Trail

Looking Back At Looking Forward

Reflections on reflection

Reflex reaction’s reflux

A “been there done that

T-shirts grab bag

Folded, wrinkled,

pressed for time

In dressed up

dressed down

dresser drawers

Mind’s eye vision looking back.

How so I see me seamy

In this seamless robe of time?

My steamy seamy see me

Identifies my dreamy dream me

Captured crazed captions

Commentaries crass

Bite my ass.


Yet Alpha and Omega

Cuts with no paste

Speaking clarified crystal clear confidentials.

” Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.  Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3: 12-14)

For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.”
(Hebrews 11: 14-16)
