This narrow greenway

Shackled between Macadam

An imprisoned oasis


Fractured Gems

Pedestals again

Thrust themselves to the forefront.

Must one be flawless

To warrant veneration,

Or is human good enough?


When humanity 

Struggles to be their best selves

Despite many flaws,

This is the heroism

That warrants veneration.


If our heroes must

Be alabaster figures,

They will not be found

Lest we manufacture them

And plaster them with whitewash.

Neither Pedestal Nor Pit

How themes repeat.

Aroil in Pain

He’s not what he seems.

People seldom appear just

As they really are.

The worst are often much more

And the best, often much less.

It’s best to reserve

Both worship and scorn until

Long acquaintance shines

Revelation’s light into

Their every crack and crevice.
