Where Pigs Fly

The magnitude of ignorance

staggers beyond

the scope of imagining,

a weakening throng


The danger of assumption,

its hard biting edge

empowers deception

shoved over the ledge


The vacuums of denial

we fight to defend

are lost in the moment

pushed out to the end


This emptiness we carry

and knowledge we fear

footnote our destruction

—as fools shed a tear


(Rosemont College: November, 2021)
