Day 3: “Detained”


the irony of your beliefs

and what demands you extend

generates the laughter

of a bitter tongue;

one that speaks few

but grand.

with such surety

hangs all hope of sway

so oft infirmity

but presently not

when narrow minds

best hearken.

what pursuits to be had

with your assent

by dint of rank

and fortuity

but you do not dare

dream as I do.

and so such visions

of care and conscience

do subside

but remain so vivid

as how but I covet

much brighter days.
