CHINA
(2/10/15)


we live
most of our
lives
not considering
the meaning
of terms
used
since youth

we accept
them
without question

then
one day
the world stops
and we wonder
at words
seen
and heard
for decades

if we
gave
every uttered
and printed
element
proper consideration
we would never
escape
the classroom

the dictionary

we have lives
to live
after all

let some
definitions
define
themselves

stop obsessing
over them

turn on
the dishwasher

the Dutch
oven
is dirty
