gambling on social justice…

 

got folks
outside
the candy store
staring
at
opaque glass
they
can’t
really see
the sweets
they’ve
heard about
and
will
most likely
never
taste
but
they’ve got
some pretty pictures
like
promises
painted
for
them
on the glass
outside
pictures
carefully crafted
by
those who
own
the store
who offer
free tenants
a lifetime
of
servitude
to
buy
a lottery ticket
for
the chance
to
come inside

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
