Winnebago Creation Myth - Peace Pipe Puffs.
Morning Star. Water Spirits. Celestial. Earthen.
Carlos Castenada's was taught by Medicine Men.
A Old Indian said to him:
"A man goes to knowledge as he goes to the war,
wide awake, with fear, with respect, and with the
Absolute Assurance. Going to knowledge or War
in any other manner is a mistake, and Whoever
makes it will regret his steps." ( This was 1990)
I was a Guest of he Peoples Committee. Hanoi.
I participated rebuilding a bombed Health Clinic.
The U.S. State Department approved of our Plans.
To see Vietnamese Peasantry in Peace was Essential.
This morning I picked up a old book by `Bao Ninh.
He survived US bombing of rural and Hanoi City.
Bao Ninh was the:
"Winer of The Independent Foreign Fiction Award.
Book Title: The Sorrow of War.
I read that he heard the howls.
He experienced deadly silence.
Rain, monotony, sporadic fire,
napalm, B- 52's, bloated corpse,
and saw through`The Paris Peace.
Remember those `Peace Accords.
Kissinger etc., bombed civilians.
This is legal homegrown tobacco.
The government banned substance.
There was a Plant called`Rosa Canina.
The Flower is Intoxicating. Dreamlike.
Only a few Puffs and a Wisp of Smoke:
One felt as `Floating in a `Gentle Wind.
Soldiers sliced root, flower, and leaves.
The Pungent Flower Blooms near creek.
Fish nibble on 'Rosa Canina' plants too.
I read the Fish Flesh Intoxicates Eaters.
When John Phillip Baca (Nixon) received?
The Congressional Medal of Honor? Gads.
Henry Kissinger was chomping on T- bone.
I recall vividly. Kissinger ignored us. huh?
He didn't know a military escort was coming.
After The White House Ceremony we ate.
I can remember how sad I was. Indigestion?
I was grieving and suffered `Survival Guilt.
There's much happening here. I be back?
I hope so. I recall how fancy the eatery.
I walked right passed Kissingers table.
Next time? I may burp. I belch`Cuss.
These ill/ilk look down. They `Kill.
Never Forget. O, 3.2- million`Die.
They think they no smell Putrid?
They stink to the Highest Places.
Hanoi soldiers - disgust of politics:
" . . . suffering in life, pain and death,
the common fate of us soldiers etc.,
We pray sacred souls will bless us,
that we may overcome enemy fire,
and avenge our lost comrades . . . "
That was Bao Ninh's whisper . . .
In my Imagination? I ponder . . .
Maybe this is Bao Ninh or who?
Bao Ninh was there in the jungle.
He Survived 1969 - 1972 Bombing.
I recall a quote in 1972 after Bombing.
The Wall Street Journal - Cover Page.
The question was: What is the Lesson?
Kissinger said: We should have Bombed?
He sure did. He wanted to bomb Heavily.
He ( H.K .) wished we bombed Hanoi earlier.
This (somehow?) is in response to Inspirations.
We go Looking off into the Sky. No illegals? huh.
