Poem: A Quibble with the Highly Educated 

They know nothing of madness
and are therefore susceptible.
Seek madness and you shall find it.
Avoid madness and it shall seek you.
Sanity is a narrow path, neither seeking nor avoiding.

What does narrow mean?

What if the birds stopped
vectoring and scrawled
cursive s’s in the folds of the sky?

What you can say for the highly
and badly educated is that they don’t
lack for a creed, a buzzword, a
game on a court of their own
making, who don’t make anything.

If you seek madness scrawl
in the folds of the sky. Avoid
the highly educated who are merely
crazy, dragging agendas off
a precipice that doesn’t exist.
