Selective Ignorance (a poem)


Selective Ignorance
Written April 19th, 2012

Threads tear, bare from use
Sad puppy cries, dejected
Punished for trying

But that is just fine
You’re incapable of wrong
Stark blind, full of whine.

No safe place for hearts
Angry shadows and bad air
Smells: rancid decay

But that is just fine
You’re incapable of wrong
Jealous, past your prime.

Watch a joyful soul
Crumble and suffocate here
A plant in darkness

But that is just fine
You’re incapable of wrong
All talk, with no spine.

Dreams crushed under foot
You could help, put action forth
Instead we suffer

But that is just fine
You’re incapable of wrong
Ignore passing time.
