North American Dreaming: Tattered Minds

William Burkholder's poem suggests we go stampeding towards a truth we cannot find.

The historians clambering to envenom us with the subjugation of myth and folklore, squeaking as the rusty hinge, incoherent placations, cleaving, and combusting, disparate to the sub-macro deliriums that we wander to and lust for.

We are but the micro,
few have bloomed as the jasmine.
Our emaciated minds stampeding to a truth
that no one can find.

While the doorbell ringing,
and the windowpanes laughing
at our scraped knees, elbows and egos,
crying out, crying out,
in empty sidewalk pain
