Chaos | A Poem by Noah Steinberg-Di Stefano

Glassy eyes
Blank Stares
transfixed on

If anything,
the dizzying pace of passing traffic
a marching sea

whose tides stop for nothing
or browsing on hand-held screens
engaged in 5 conversations at once

engaged in anything, but the world around them
Day in and Day out
Chaos is only interrupted by intervals of

“Hi, How are you?”
“Where are you headed?”
Powerful whispers

Drowning out sirens and car horns
Greed and Envy
Fueled by billboards that are

most persuasive than even the most skilled debate artist.
Building desire for things that everyone wants

but no one can afford.

Chaos
Steamrolling movement
impervious to compassion and reason
Whose only kryptonite
Is a simple Good Morning
