whether we like it

whether we like it
or not, we are exposed to
the paralyzing

virus of complacency –
the shows must go on and on

siblings – we will not

siblings – we will not
get it right half of the time,
precisely because

in our complacency, we
can’t fathom getting it wrong

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

for eventually everyone,

for eventually everyone,
All-American sneaks up
on you –
a once colorful
ideal faded into
a colorless
complacency, as
spirited as any rendition
of Lee Greenwood’s
popular blessing,
as humdrum as
apple pie, Memorial
Day barbecue, and
voting rights –
conflict is just
an inconvenience
to be swept
under the rug
