forgotten easily
how it is not the
ripples of action
but the center
of brazen impact
causing movement
across the water
that is where
it begins
turbulent drops
rousing unexpectedly
complacent carriers
of hazardous waste
masked with acceptance
for each wave
over takes territory
identity of the individual
until the original
disappears as though
they were never there
prioritizing the need
to find where it
all began, the center
distorting our world
