Hate wells up in a binary world where the thought of a three beyond one or two is a stretch too far

Hate wells up in a binary world where the thought
of a three beyond one or two is a stretch too far
A binary world where the underlying tonality is
anger hate resentment seething in a cauldron of self-hatred
bred from the binary
For in a binary where one cannot find a third and where 
the sign is this and then that and no further
there is no reach far enough
to swallow the rising nausea of hate
Circumstances of life of place of climate of relationship
can grate and press and strain
but finally it is that inner no to binaries 
that liberates
and states that you and I are free
to say a no to this or that
to one or two
to OK
and in that space
to experiment with a way
beyond the hate
beyond the conundrum
beyond the straitjacket
beyond the box
Binary has been the default in all of history
and only now is there more widely known
the option that was there all along
There is the one
There is the two
then providentially
The three
This is the way the mind is meant to work
It will not end all war and hate
but it will enable us to see what its origin is
and to stop blaming conditions that have
nothing to do with the little core inside us that
if free to say a yes
and a no
And to move on
