finding a workable solution to land mines…

finding a workable solution to land mines

fingers
tracing
sharp edges
hoping
to discover
a solution
before
those
finely hone
edges
from abuse
can make
clean
bleeding cuts
into
societal skin
these are
negotiations
with
outcasts
outcasts
deafened by promises
unkept
and
dreams held
at arm’s length
visible
but
unattainable
recall
sun tzu’s
the art of war
few do
so
those
ignored
by a society
that lauds
personal achievement
and
make calls
to those
wrapped
in poverty;s cellophane
to
pull yourself up
by
your bootstraps
knowing
all the while
there are
no boots
and
the straps
were removed
long ago
