ENOUGH SAID
(12/28/13)


yes

no

love

hate

words
changing nothing
other than
to increase
the frustration
of futility
for the sayer

who keeps
speaking persistently
while watching
the approaching
inevitability
of failure

hopeful photons
beamed
at a careening
asteroid
bent upon
Earth's destruction

the heavens
hear no pleas
across the vacuum
of space

as people
remain unswayed
within their silent
atmosphere
of ego

talking
to the deaf
is moot
when they
will not
watch
our lips

they see
only
the cloud
of their own
assumed
greatness

as we
see only
ours

each
of us
alone

forever
