Poet’s Nook: "Crucifixions" by Donald Hogan


I am not an idealist, nor a cynic
But merely unafraid of contradictions..
I have seen men face each other when

Both were right yet each was determined

To kill the other, which was wrong.

What each man saw was an image of the other,

Made by someone else.

That is what we are prisoners of…

(Gotta love the powerful simplicity of this short piece).
