paternal oversight

September 3, 2013 § 1 Comment

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

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

doors slammed distant
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
as an instrument of indifference
