"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

Doomed to repeat it

Bus post! Please forgive the absence of links until I get to a real computer.
Prompt #07: Wrong Hands

How slight a movement,
and then it all can just


Watch the shine,
but careful,
a misled path
is difficult
to self-correct.

If not now,
Patterns lie beautiful,
prostrate before us,
too easy to step over
and abandon.

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
Paul Simon, Late in the Evening
