SEMINAL ELEMENTS
(9/4/16)

adults
seem to forget
the impressionable
sponges
that once
were their
minds

they
fail to see
the mirrors
of their child's
eyes

fail
to remember
the interpretations
behind them

we are
irreversibly molded
before we enter
our first classrooms

there are
no records
of those first schools
to transfer along
the matriculated
trail

they are
hidden
in our psyches

in our
souls

smoldering
for future
graduations
