IMPERFECT STORM
(5/6/16)


all
of the elements
seemingly align
at times
for our destruction

elements
that have destroyed
so many
others

but somehow

despite
of our apathy

our lack
of positive
action

we are spared
the catastrophic
consequences
that seemed
so certain

we don't
really understand
why

we don't
really care

if our character
deficiencies
have yet
to actually
cause us harm

fixing
the underlying
causes
would be just
be a waste
of our precious
energy

we have
better things
not
to do
