Thoughts on the uptown A

Gratefulness –
most valuable
where it seems
least possible.
The simple math-
addition of all the 
justifcations needed
to explain an otherwise
inexplicable life,
a life as malaise,
drinking invisible Kool-Aid
feeling wise and profound
while others bucked
seeming desperate–
when the ledger is tallied
I would be a fool 
to regret
a single wrong turn
clutching to myself
unimpeachable good character
even if
at the moment
gratefulness is not something
I can wrap myself in.
