How Can A Man Be So Intelligent... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

how can a man be so intelligent
to prey upon his own

he ceases to be a part
of his own kind,

he places himself on the throne
of his own disaster

he makes his own kingdom
of tinmen and
haywomen and iron soldiers
and wood servants

he carves his own stone heart
ruthlessly he walks
and kills whatever displeases him

he paves his silver path
to his own hell
