Vagabond's Vision #85
Runaways sustain sanity
only if their absent minds
escape into attendance,
attached to whirls of meandering
mind altering designations,
where crawling voices
acknowledge atrophy, their mischief
ignorant to large landfills of symbols combed
of inviolability, erasable misery.
In a profound mistake,
only if understood as such,
which rarely an animal pounces
from depths discovered, wandering distances,
long strides becoming breakable
aspects of created diversions.

"The particular motivation for this poem arrived in two forms. First, the culture that is considered popular, I examine closely and write many poems about its many damaging aspects towards the minds of those alive, especially children. Second, the word “Runaways” appeared within my mind, and thus, the two intertwining entities formed the concept for the poem itself. Within the poem, “Runaways” are enveloped by the several aspects of popular culture, metaphorically."
