Piloting the Pitfalls

L.T. Garvin

How will you do it….

save all these

young disciples

with three-word vocabularies

voices forever impaired?

They strike at trees

that scratch back

with brittle branches.

Should they spend their time

deciphering the scrawl

of dead poets,

plotting the elevation and depression

of angles?

Really, would you rather

they compute instead of sketching

circles in dead air?

The staircase stops short

littered from a field

of acronyms.

I am like an English driver

walking an American hallway

on the left side

directly in the path of traffic.

They laugh at

wasted hours

sing anthems to shattered stars

opting to

fly blind through

tainted galaxies.
