The Spin of Society

Two Poems
by Heath Brougher

Oil and Water

I haven’t been found
of a peaceful mind
in so long if ever trulyI’ve been always at odds
with the overall masque
the vanity of modernAmerica with its
Manmade realities
haunting the populacea society of people
who don’t want to
explore their mindssoon enough Thought will be thrown its death
impaled upon the white picket fences of suburbia.


I am always alwaysing my way through life
                        turnstiling through these days
made of illusion and lies

the hamster wheel spinneth eternal
                        …fan rotation and so on…

until I
unlatch from this loop
to see that circular paths are false

for the Truth lives within the Spiral.

to unsnag the grindstone endlessly turning

one must disconnect oneself
in order to stop this massively insane friction.

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
