AN ODD NUMBER OF SOCKS
(2/17/15)


sometimes
the simple
converts
into complex
seemingly
of its own
accord

but
that is never
the case

the elemental
unravels
due to neglect

inattention

we permit
basic facts
to become
human anomalies
through our frivolous
natures

the converse
is seldom
the case

the complex
can usually
be simplified
only through
applied angst

through
highly focused
intent

unless
some Gospel
of Thomas
understanding
comes along
to show us
a more direct
route

because
someone else
invested
the hard work
before us

otherwise
we are
left alone
to boil
and toil
through the madness
that we have
allowed
to happen

looking
for answers

where
no questions
originally
existed
