events – concatenated

Creative Destruction

 events – concatenated

pivotal events concatenation
of massive dead information
intelligibly listed

logic chopping vicissitudes of politics
superficially characterizing life

markets that started wars
battles that launched revolutions

arguable peaks and valleys of history
to conclude that biology
is but an interlude of geology

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. This is so good…right away the collage caught me up in what was to follow! Great.

  2. Your last two lines are fabulous: made me blink and think YaY!

  3. I love the opening three lines–spot on for so much. And the ending seems…extremely logical. Collage is simply mind-blowing.

  4. I love the last stanza. 🙂

  5. The ending is terrific! What are we but just an interlude… and a ways of destruction? Clever and harsh.

  6. Tee last two lines tell it all. Human failings contribute to destruction of the physical nature and landscape! Nice write Tammy!


  7. ha…love your summation in the closing lines…we all become geology soon enough eh? smiles…

  8. Loved the collage of pics and yeah we are our own worst enemies, yet the oh so superior species, pfft right.

  9. always great to hear you read Tammy – concatenation . . . now thats a word! 😀

  10. Re: Hedgewitch…something tells me you are a very logical person! Yes, your last line wrapped up the scenario perfectly…it’s just an interlude of geology. Love that collage too.

  11. Love the way you ended this! “Arguable” indeed! (if only the arguing would stop, eh?)
    Thank you.

  12. Very loaded compressed writing. Agh – from dust to dust! k.

  13. Tammy, you’re telling it like it is! The Big Picture, ignored by the same folks who think global warming is a fairy tale and all people who are not Anglo are bad, bad, bad… from politics to the eventual truth that, as a species, we are pretty much screwed, you skewered that whole kebob. Sad but true, so true. Excellent write! Peace (yeah, I know…) Amy

  14. to conclude that biology
    is but an interlude of geology… ha… this is awesome….love the collage as well…the pic and in your words

  15. There’s an undeniable logic to the piece, Tammy – nice use of scientific language to set up the premise.

  16. I like the last line too ~ Wonderful work on the collage of creative destruction ~

  17. This is wonderful! I particularly like ‘logic chopping vicissitudes of politics/superficially /characterizing life/markets that started wars/battles that launched revolutions…’ How true – so many of us are turned off by politics these days.

  18. Really awesome lines here. Great reading as well. Love your choice of wording, it really shows how word type definitely offers significant effects to the perception of a piece.

  19. Lovely work. I especially like those last two lines.


  20. Great closing point. Word.

  21. very cool. love the words you used!

  22. Dear friend,
    Great write, in fact, I think I’ve learn something today. Great ending also.

  23. great last two lines!

  24. Great take on the letter E. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

  25. Excellent photos put together.

  26. Your montage of words is as fascinating as your collage♫♪

  27. Of course I had to look up ‘concatenated’, and once I understood the meaning, I understood your verse more clearly….I found your mosaic of images amazing, as was your intelligent and thought-provoking poem….
