fatal crash…

the explosion
will send shards
of
hot metal
and
warm
human flesh
in all directions
the victims
will have
no
chance
for
survival
since
the driver
has been
excessively speeding
speeding
in an armored
vehicle
plated
with
privilege
privilege
that
no one
chose
to challenge
even
those
charged
with
the responsibility
to
slow
irrationale drivers
failed
to
disrupt
the illogical course
of
a nation
letting
a driver
under the influence
of
power
to
not only
demolish
a
nation’s history
but
also
its
people

 

phase shift…

i know
where
i began
and
that
there is
an end
i can recall
the heights
of joy
and
still
can feel
the pain
of
my
deepest sadness
i wonder
do i
divide
those by 2
or
do i
use
the years
i’ve lived
in
this
equation of life
but
more importantly
where
am
i now

 

abdication…

infant child care
safe and nurturing
home away from home
promised growth
and
learning
through play
that’s
the solution
private preschool
individualized
sterile instruction
on
how to succeed
in life
through
monitored
behavioral goals
that’s
the solution
sessions
with
a child psychologist
topics
vary
attempting
to define
what does not exist
that’s
the solution
private structure school
designed
to cater to
the
individual
while shaping
the young mind
for
social conformity
that’s
the solution
parenting classes
with joint
child psychological counseling
topics
vary
redefining
what does not exist
that’s
the solution
public education
mingling
with the common folks
without
the social tools
to separate
the desires for acceptance
from
socially approved
processes
of acquisition
that’s
the solution
world travel
isolated from peers
to gain
insight of the world
without
addressing the desires
for
acceptance
that’s
the solution
boarding school
designed
to cater to
the
individual
while shaping
the young teenage mind
for
social conformity
that’s
the solution

 

with monotonous regularity…

i am
as they say
a creature
of
habit
each day
i
have my morning coffee
prepared
the same way
as
yesterday
and
often
followed
with
the same
breakfast
venturing
into new fare
with
an eye
of
reluctance
however
i do
induce
periodically
the half-hearted drive
of
a forced explorer
oh
i know such
sameness
sounds
quite boring
but
my trait
of
devotion
extends
to
my love
for
you

 

reciprocity…

the lives
of
those
who defined
who we are
have
washed away
like
sand
as
we stood
on life’s beach
admiring
the view
and
enjoying
its offerings
but
just lately
you may
have begun
to feel
the cold surf
beneath
your feet
as
someone
further
on shore
admires
the view
