HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT
(3/23/14)


I truly
believe
that the most stunning
of revelations
lie just
beneath
the surface
of utter simplicity

all
of the great
acts

discoveries

proclamations

in the end
are simply
just empty
ego shells

I know
this
because none
of that nominal
greatness
of the past
has saved
my ass

hard work
and concentration
on the basics
have been
my salvation

so I look
there
for meaningful
answers
to my humanity

as jewels
beneath
ugly stone
I hope to find
a geode
in the everyday
gravel
of my existence
