Composition with Nectarines, Jonathan Kane

He says the Kali Yuga is the age we've just entered,
a kalpa of darkness, destruction, and psychic emptiness
where everything is turned around—and lies and phoniness
bring success. "Each kalpa lasts 3000 divine years,"
he explains. "One divine year equals
360 human ones." He gives a curious twist
to his mustache, reaches under the table
and hands us an abacus
to figure it out.
