Stephen Gospage on The thing about poetry... (10 hours ago)

Hay

espy their blind spot, the

prey animals on the alert,

that spook all too readily,

so terrified of getting hurt

calming down our minds,

like keeping the sun out

with full venetian blinds

 

blinkers are anaesthetic,

de-senistised our brains,

the big picture pales, we

race for short-term gains

 

blinkers make it easier,

greed...
