Poem: "A Position of Defeat 5"




5.

not in the category of the sun,
the school of traffic signals yet still blinks
at what the five-vehicle pile-up thinks
of Cyclops and his rock hurled at no one

i take another road, a way around
the bloody questions and the shattered limbs
a basketball racing the metal rim
before it swerves and falls crashing down

though i am fast-insured against dust mite
to circumscribe the right amount of wrong
i cannot throw off in a playsome song
the burden of the wrong amount of right
