Finding the Pearl - an art work and poem by T Newfields
Jules: Is this a poem or sermon?
Ellesha: Well, good poems have multiple dimensions.
Jules: (frowning) Too often philosophy often gets in the way of poetry.
Why can't this dude describe an oyster without preachin'?
Ellesha: You have such critical eyes. Why is your skepticism so deep?
Jules: Au contraire, most people are far too afraid of criticising.
They're in a state of – what shall I call it – conditioned helplessness.
Andrei: (chuckling) Isn't zhat precisely where zhose in power want zem?
