The Most Committed

We are witnessing
extinction.

Government mastery
dying as we elect 
a progression

of cartoon caricatures.

Best guess voting
for one over another.
Caught in a matrix of
collateral havoc 
incurred by pawning 
our rationality to the
iniquity of political
parties.

But on the light
side.

We’ve learned to 
move on from 
paralyzing tragedies,
quicker than we 
dispose of
fast-food wrappers.

Unless the damage is
personal, reacting as
though we’ve been 
outmaneuvered.

By an original crisis.

Omitting that every
event is just a 
contextual variant of 
chronic fates we 
incubate in our 
thoughts.

Unlike the most
committed who 
vow to incite with 
a contrasting
sentience.

Seeds of love growing.

In the desert.

      1. as someone said the other day ” it is like the feeling when you know you are going to rear end another car….you can see it in slow motion…the only thing that lessens the impact of the crash is the time between noticing braking and contact.” There is time, I agree. thank you so much for your exquisite photography and poetry that always leaves me ‘wondering’
