seeing through

by admin

a sledgehammer used where the
task calls for a toothbrush.

a fleeting flush of triumph
obliterates ten thousand opportunities.

we’ve seen it before, and we
never fail to grieve.

in grieving, we see through the
facile charm of the sledgehammer.

we become adept
with the toothbrush.

never forgetting, we
forgive and forgive.
