55 - Complacency is an elephant chained to a shallow peg
it was nothing much
an old, paint flecked rust, lawn mower deck
motor removed, wheels greased
& seat attached
one pushing, behind,
while the other stared
the teeth of what came next---
death was never a thought,
but always present, in our beating
hearts, too busy
learning life to notice.

Over at dVerse today---at 3 pm EST we will be unveiling an opportunity for poets during a very special Meeting the Bar. See you there...
