Poetry: Good Way by JD DeHart

Good Way

We do not know the good

way, or if there is one way

We do not know how

to live plaster and lace lives,

or be porcelain people,

or to speak in alabaster tones

All we know is the making of

our way, ignoring the voices

around us that speak

in cacophony, taking words

we need from an occasional

sage, uncertain of which road

is the high road, or if there is

a higher road, just glad there

is a road at all.
