Probe

Dim the lights

and cue the madcap introspection tango

stagger leap across the stage as

we rummage through

the tag sale of our thoughts&history

probe our emotional fault lines with gloves on

glide past the burnt metal tang of failure

the smoky rich umber of nostalgia

dip & inspect the chalk outlines

dotting our sidewalks of sins

as we pick through our offerings.

all too often our biased goggles

spin & sift past the positive pickings,

only to hone in

on the polished, soiled gold of negativity.
