Poetry ~ Impulsive


a minor slight
fueled her
creativity

impulsively,
when her
emotions flared,
she wrote

a word …
maybe two

sometimes,
a monologue
detailing the
ridiculous nature
of  the human condition

she  was guilty
of impulsive behavior,
but

she reckoned,
as most reasonable
people do,
that was different

she saw the
hypocrisy
in her own words

she had
glimpsed
enlightenment,

self-awareness
was key,
she preached

however,

no amount
of enlightenment
or self-awareness
was remedy
for her condition:

she was
after all,
human
