My unearthed secret

Is no longer harmless fun

It is a weapon

Quarried confusion

Cigarette butts, beer bottles

Ground before the bench

Breeze shatters daydream

Breath of reality strikes

Contemplation dies

Resist

the temptation

of the forbidden fruit,

sweetest pleasures become bitter

through guilt.

No cherry blossom

Seagulls squawking overhead

Yet it feels like spring.

I am expert

in the ancient discipline;

Mediocrity.
