Platitudes

The danger lies in living a life based solely on things people had told me - hearsay

Or worse, things I read on the internet from reputable sources

It’s a very good career

It’s a really good school

It’s a very well known company

And so on and so forth


The danger is in always navigating the ancient city

The one in rubble

The one that fell and was rebuilt from bits of rubble and new material

Shoddily laid upon the old bits of old rubble


What a mess

And yet

/

This would be my hometown

My internal map

/

Forever

And just because

/

Of preferring the platitudes

To the double edge

To the razing knife

To the scorching fire

And the eviscerating wind


The Antagonist
