Internal Locus Lost

What Narcissism!

Forgetting how to control

both temper and car,

he lays heavy on his horn

trying, vainly, to control

actions of other drivers.

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.
