Damn Kids

Take anything

you think you are, and turn it

 

into ruins.  You are an ancient civilization

buried in laughter.  Unsentimental, rugged,

 

mysterious, and quick – though for you, right now, it feels

halted              The magician

 

has just revealed

his greatest

 

magic trick:                 the perpetual illusion

of motion

 

You watch, from across the yard

a gerrymandering few

 

wasps

shrewdly play

 

the many, as the cat and dog

rest firmly on their laurels; and the fireflies

 

skitter

about, rife.  They will look right at you, vastly unimpressed, and –

 

just like that, bring you

back to light.
