1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    π Stretching Faces In Time
    (Or A Long-Winded Koan)

    Then there was nothing—
    Just before the geometric genesis:

    When the pearly teeth of God parted
    And the big bang got booming—
    The golden spiraling timbre of His
    (Or Her if you prefer)
    Fibonacci Word:

    I Am
    I Am.

    Do you remember that sound?
    Raining down in ecstatic logarithms,
    Sending Mandelbrot islands
    Fractaling like fire off
    Into sequin-pixeled seas
    Of pulsing ones and zeroes—

    (__________pulsing like red plasma through
    ___________blue cellular pipe-work);

    The resonating silence
    Punctuated by a metallic prick—
    An ice-pick stabbing into
    The apex of your neck;

    The way the reflexion rested
    Persistence-of-Time style
    Across the shiny convex
    Surface of eternity—

    Where all restless equations find zero
    And infinity can tell you a joke so funny
    You’ll dive right into your own navel
    (Knock, Knock...)--

    Chaos brighter than sunlight spinning
    Tawdry oranges, peace-keeping greens,
    Whistling yellows, and plush violets—
    Weaving them into a gaudy brocade
    Like a dragon on some Japanese kimono;

    The Zen-step beat of computing
    Like indigo Jazz across the
    Rippling diameter of the Lightsphere
    To grab a pint of Ben and Jerry’s;

    Fingering googolplexes like silly putty
    With Socrates on a chrysanthemum;

    That hang-loose third-eye groove
    And the quaint allure of Yin and Yang.
    Those good old days
    When the wave had passed over
