A Glass Of Wine

A Glass of Wine

Desperately desiring depth

I wade through the shallows

in the muddy waters of distracted disorientation

in the random salesmanship of a million products

all vying for my attentions

intent upon my demise as a thinking entity

transforming me into a consumer of yet another “Big Gulp.”

Trapped perhaps

in the sordid world of mundane thought


a pattern of self destruction so encompassing

as they laugh at my dilemma

these powers that be

so easy to blame

but what about me?

What part am I playing in this perpetual processing plant of

mass extinction

what do I actually do about it?

A call to arms?

Or do I merely howl at the moon

insufficient on all fronts

yet not without tooth and claw

for there is power in number

and when two becomes three

multiplied ad infinitum

a beast arises capable of consuming the consumers

the hundredth monkey come at last.

I must confess

I am spoiling for a fight!

A visible, tangible enemy

something I can sink my teeth into

one that doesn’t evaporate on sight

becoming again an abstract ideal

and merely leaving me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Where are they?

these serial rapists of the natural order

perpetual perpetrators

Traitors I mean

who’ve now unlocked Pandora’s box?

Show Yourselves!!!

Stand before me eye to eye

toe to toe

I dare you

but I must warn you

I’ll go down swinging

wildly perhaps in an adrenal dump of massive proportions

better keep your chin down

for one of those punches is bound to connect.

Okay, granted,

maybe I should calm down

a more gradual process

a slower build

the beast never shows his face anyway

and even if I cut off his head he’d just grow another.

Back to the drawing board

a lesson learned

a vision vented

I feel better now

and even if nothing outside has really changed something inside of me has

a new insight

one requiring some thought and reflection

I’ll take a page from Scarlett O’hara

I’ll think about it tomorrow


that’s the ticket


that should be soon enough

anybody have a glass of wine?
