DIMINISHING DISASTER
(3/19/14)


the decision
was simple

straight forward

made
with the best
of intentions

perhaps
a bit egotistical

a minor
vanity
that seemed
to do
no harm

but unforeseen
circumstances
combined
with that decision
to form
a very aggressive
social cancer
that began to kill
everything
in its path

I could only
watch
as the fallout
accumulated

the misery
increased

the money
decreased

amazingly
in the end
I was
pretty much
the same

in the eye
of the shit storm
I hardly
stank
at all

resentments
resided
elsewhere

a vacation
seemed
in order
