A crash course in changing the world.

The Second Bank of Evoke - Where Currency has no Currency

Okay friends and neighbors, we committed a grievous act over at the First Bank of Evoke and started (gasp) sharing jokes, poems, and such without exchanging EVs. To prevent such anarchy from undermining the capitalist principles of said bank, we are opening the Second Bank of Evoke.

Think of it as literary freecycling - so feel free to deposit or drop off your old poems, jokes, artwork, whatever for another agent to come across and take "home" with them. Frankly, you can't swing a cat around the quest description without hitting the phrase creative or does art or something similar (and no, I don't actually swing cats) so step up and leave something on the doorstep. Inspire your fellow agents or make us laugh.

And before anybody gets too in my face about this is off topic, this is the Second Bank of Evoke operating on the gift economy - so give.

Get your mildly used poem here!

Subway to the Suburbs

Her foot flexed,
only her toes touching dirty floor,
she dreams of dancing
as the MBTA sways its erratic rhythms.
Eyes closed, it conveys her,
carries her, takes her
to green catacombs
where Sisyphus weekly mows his lawn
and the skylark's song falls to the engine's roar.

This is Not a Book

It's a trap door, an ingress,
the last place you'd think
to look for saving grace
or a ticket to hell. It's a few
futile pangs of abstinence
and overindulgence bubbling
together in the same sacred pot.

It's a feast of evaporation
like a bad dream, a ream
of recipes for banquets only
the brave dare attend.
It's a room filled with doors,
a question mark wearing
a smirk on its lips one minute

and Mothers smile the next.
It's a last chance to gas up
before you attempt the long
drive between where you
wanted to be and home,
a secret so filled with itself
it's been leaking at its seams.

this joke is by slavo zizek:
A young schoolboy has to write a short
composition entitled “There is only one mother!,” in which he is expected
to illustrate, apropos of a specific experience, the love which
links him to his mother; this is what he writes: “One day I came
home from school earlier than usual, because the teacher was ill; I
looked for my mother, and found her naked in bed with a man who
was not my father. My mother shouted at me angrily:‘What are you
staring at like an idiot? Why don’t you run to the fridge and get us
two cold beers!’ I ran to the kitchen, opened the fridge, looked in
side, and shouted back to the bedroom:‘There’s only one, Mother!’”

Why do catholics cross themselves? To get to the other side.

This is Not a Confession

It is a definition,
a recognition,
a blue ribbon moment
in a first place day.

It is a conclusion
pleased to find itself
perched on a good idea,
a presumption preening

its discovery for all
the world to admire.
This is not a confession;
it is an acknowledgement,

a bright shiny pebble
on a gray sandy beach.
Don't expect regret
or repentance- look for

repetition and accolades
that rejoice each time
I take delight in being
an odd and original blessing.

Very nice, Ethan, but I think you should credit Fredrick Zydek.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
