Ivan Kireevskii Author

A wandering ascetic, born stoic,
was taught by Hume … where he
learned to question the absolute.
He became Vienna’s myth-maker.
He is Michaelangelo and will paint you sadness.
He is Montaigne and has relished solitude.
He is Descartes … was born a devout stranger, never a child.

    In the second volume of his Les Philosophique series, Ivan Kireevskii draws from the kingdoms of antiquity and modern times, reassembling a body of words from out of his own reality and creating a language that may have never existed before: a language aimed at the senses, penetrating far below the conscious level of thought, in search of feeling for syllable and rhythm. His method uncovers layer after layer-an archeological separation of myth from conflated myth.

    Kireevskii has developed his special use of language to intensify his consciousness of reality and experience full mystical awareness. He maneuvers his consciousness to the borderline, drawing that which was previously unexpressed into the realm of the expressible. The result is a work often incommensurable and incomprehensible, reflecting his belief that “a poem that leaves nothing to be guessed is no true work of art to the beholder.”

    The inherently divisive and exploitative nature of capitalism, is readily apparent when one draws back the curtain of the global banking system. One peak reveals their inner workings, where it becomes clear that it looks less like a legitimate business enterprise and more like a criminal syndicate running a lucrative extortion racket.
    In the Wall Street economy, money is both means and end, and the primary product is phantom wealth—money disconnected from the production or possession of anything of real value.
    In our era of deregulation on Wall Street banks have moved away from their traditional role of providing loans to consumers and businesses. Instead, they have created a new business model that specializes in charging excessive fees and usurious interest rates, provides excessive leverage for risky bets for hedge funds, extracts subsidies and bailouts from governments, launders money from drug and arms traders, and use offshore accounts to hide their profits.
    While the middle class melts away, banks have profited at every step. The forty-year experiment of “trickle-down” economics has favored the interest of Wall Street speculators, but has been a dismal failure for the average working man and woman.
    Thus, this book of poetry is subtitled, The Voices of the Bankers and the Thieves.

    The world sits on the precipice of social unrest, economic uncertainty and a pandemic of historic proportions. We are at a place as a civilization that has up to now been conjured only in the works of fiction. But here we are. I have to ask, how much of this has been brought due to our own selfishness, greed, and total disregard for our planet and the plight of our sentient kin and one another?
