The Eagle, a predatory bird! Sometimes a small emblem can say so much!

Dark Matter

too much respect
for inside voice 
in places where
the outside voice
should be required
too much tolerance
of outside voice 
where inside voice
would work better

the swollen tissue
we call

entirely too much

the inability to see

the notion that 
any “_____ism”
isn’t holding steady

a lack of real eagles
married to 
a preference for symbolic ones

armored intensities
squared off

an insistence upon
picture perfection

laughter wrung
from the deadly misfortune
of others being other

its standing in red-soaked earth
kept wet through clumsy inattention
and skillful market research

its clowned remarkability
its durable packaging

  1. the inability to see

    Wow, hadn’t thought of it that way. I tend to label people concrete thinkers
    and give up on them, particularly in the area of recognizing the paradoxical nature of truth.

    Patience, a virtue I have perhaps underappreciated.

    Thanks for the insight.
