assumption of laurels

by mistersoto

always the acute awareness
fuller realizations skip
the instantaneous
of good intentions
disassembling in the air
as they fall
the meaner road
curving to the right
oh, miscommunication!
fuel for your laurels
a life lived
validated and vindicated
its assumed leaves
crumbling to dust
in your wrinkled hands
and what of me?
in this crazed tennis match
