paternal oversight

September 3, 2013 § 1 Comment

deliberately
off world
as territorial conflict
threatens drift –
downstairs
into the living room

he sits at his desk
attending to the pathology
of his own mind

doors slammed distant
backbeat
to the tapping of his pen
on that mystical
point between his closed eyes

voices ring out malfeasance,
skirmish lines advance
between rooms
he, unmoved, using
contemplation
as an instrument of indifference
