So we retreat

into familiar narratives
ways of seeing
being
thinking
to the company of those who share our values

We’re all so busy drinking our own Kool-Aid
Few attempt mixing all the fountain sodas together anymore

We fear the unexpected flavor

Poetic Interlude: Shadow Brand

large rectangular shadow stretches into a road

Mercedes monolith
Rises from the dusty heap of civil society
Shrouds the cracked public sphere

Poetic Interlude: Plumeria

plumeria

Once fragrant
Neighborly given
Displayed; humbled
Overwhelming the interior
Scent out; shelved
Literally
No more to figure
