Italicized Mythology

Internal awareness leads purple to wonder,
what are the benefits of royal blues?

Happiness lives in Solomon if 
David fails to sin. Instead, we
have peace and its unstable opposite,
ready to support each other's existence
as Lao Tzu's one with the other 
ensures we always get both.

Perhaps that was Eden: opposites
who didn't require each other
to flourish and could instead wander
around naked and shameless.

That feels too simple;
Darwin's deathmatch may have been
primarily a hurricane in the ring
but a fight to be selected
is a natural precursor to our 
not at all benevolent past.
