New Poetry 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.
