FALLIBLE NOTIONS
(2/25/12)


age?

distraction?

onslaught
of stupidity?

what
is the source
of my sudden
slippage
in accountability?

I
who am
ostensibly responsible
for the oversight
in the efficacy
of others

when
the errors
amass
upon the ramparts
of rationality
where
does one
search
for a solution?

who
is there
to look
over these
slumping shoulders
to stave of
any decline
in decision making?

perhaps
I am no longer
qualified
to answer
those questions
for myself

possibly
the final descent
toward demise
has already
begun

how
does one
know?

do
the synapses
confer
and snap
instantaneously
beyond the reach
of reason?

or is there
a twilight
of rationality
in which one
consciously wonders
at the wasting
mental process?

maybe
this
is it

my time
in a diminishing
sun

when
the keeper
needs
to be kept
and the writing
should be
unwritten
