Tangent - Poem by Esra Sloblock

To the urbane urbanic
With your social dynamic
Who may consider soporific
A vision bucolic.
Immune to the idyllic,
To the living land myopic,
Unmoved by the panoramic.
Step back from the frenetic,
Consider the topographic.
Your existence amniotic,
Your requirements specific,
I am the critic.
