Determined Ignorance

I flinch from the
Neon glare of the reasoning
Error: Has it truly been missed or has
Xanadu’s illusory appeal overridden its
Precedence? Has survival bred this need, this
Longing for ignorance when it aides a goal
In spite of eventual retribution by that same willfully
Concealed flaw, a trap of their own creation.
Antithetical to reason, to self preservation, yet
Barring an improbable epiphany, the
Lingering conflict will be cast on another –
Error mortared to error by determined ignorance


A Bouquet of Impressions

Read as an apology
Offered as a predictable gift
Sweetly scenting the avid gardener’s home
Enchanting the romantic and
Styling their clothes


Not Always

Not always feasible – it
Errs in its lack of
Verification (and its possibility):
Extreme statements are
Rarely totally true.


Rewards

Rewards must be balanced,
Integrated with chance – to
Stretch our strengths to new,
Keener heights.


Addictive (& Delicious)

Terribly and
Extraordinarily
Addictive (& delicious)


Automatic Thought

Utterly
Normal,
Even mundane – an
Xray of automatic thought
Portrayed as unusual and
Exciting, despite its obviousness:
Certainty of others’
Thoughts gives way:
Ease overriding creativity. How
Do they stand it?


Ever Falling

Images fill the cyber sky,
Mad logics, worse than Wonderland,
Parting the real world with
Offensive slurs and storms:
Too many to count, and somehow
Even with so many resisting,
Nothing seems to change – all
Caught like a waterfall that is
Ever falling and ever held back.
