Lost In The Pogonip
and post notes and photos about your poem like Edward Ibeh.
blinders we don't see the big picture clearly
we remain lost in a blinding pogonip
never finding our way out
of its dense, misty blanket
looking at the world
with jaundiced eyes, especially when the world
keeps us from entertaining
novel ideas, seeing
situations from another perspective
does beget cynicism in
the final analysis
a celebration of blissful ignorance
to see things
as they are
we must stay awake and keep our eyes open.
