Literate Quicksand

Did you edit away the fire,

  in your attempt to be correct

 

Do your words make you a liar,

  as they break and disconnect

 

Is that order you chased after,

  now a deserted no-mans land

 

With your mind and spirit sinking

  —in a literate quicksand

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2016)
