Formulas of Virtue…

*

We have become

well versed

in the love of enemies…

That’s the long and the short of it!

*

Silent and graceful,

we move,

as automata,

in a pit of vipers…

*

Our frozen lips

trace past moralities

like a catechism…

but their utterance is forever forestalled.

*

The mudras of free-thought

have replaced our religious posturing.

Our musical conscience, our dancing spirit,

Leaps above and beyond the ‘philistine’…

  1. This sure does touch home. Even when we are not looking for enemies, they seem to come out of the woodwork, and although they seem to be outside of us, the visages are always waiting within.

      1. Not really, Stuart. It is we who are odd. It takes us forever to recognize what is right there in our face. Hope you and Sue have a great trip and event.
