What May Become by JD DeHart

Some people suggest that
a heaven awaits.  Others
don’t look up from the wheel
they’re spinning on.
I wonder sometimes when I look
in the eyes of passersby if they
even think about life.  Maybe
they are just breathing steam
engines, trying to eat tortilla chips
all the time when they are not
operating on a mating instinct.
Listen to their call:  Yup.  Naw.
Whachudoin?
Kurt Vonnegut said that most people
are idiots.  I’m still collecting data.
