IN THE PIPE
(6/11/15)


we see
a supposed
opportunity

we make
the decision

we go
for it

but even
in the beginning
we see things
going
horribly wrong

we are
compressed
upon all sides
by the best
of our
intentions

the results
however
are wandering
far
from optimal

there's nothing
to do
but to continue
onward

accept
and endure
the consequences

hopefully
survive them

emerge
on the other
side
to look
back

find the flaw
in our
reasoning

adjust
our perceptions

and move
on

with a minimal
amount
of whining

no one
really
wants to hear
about

or to learn
from

our bad
examples
anyway

they are
continually
dealing
with their
own
