There, Inert

The wheel has been lost
[let me repeat]
the WHEEL has been LOST.

Does anybody remember
where it was seen last?

Who forgot
to put it on its side?

It can’t run away
if we paralyze it–

I remember when stone
just sat there, inert.

It didn’t have an agenda,
didn’t have important places to go.

All of a sudden we’ve got rocks
on the run!

Our women and children
won’t be spared.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
