TORMENTORS
(6/25/11)


why
do they
assail us
so?

their
pesterings seem
of no benefit
to them

yet
they continue
to pick
at the perimeter
of our sanity

these
mentors
of nemesis

superficially
so unnatural

~

I watch
sparrows
dive bomb
a hawk in flight
wanting only
to hunt
the open
plain

nature
apparently
breeds
disorder
