Expectations of a Future – Alameda County Fair
This year was my first time entering the Alameda County Fair. They treat their poets really well there. Each exhibiting poet was invited to read their poem or poems at the fair. If you’re a poet in the bay area, I’d highly recommend entering next year. The fair was loads of fun, too!
My poem, “Expectations of a Future” is on display ther until July 9th, so if you can make it to Pleasanton, go check it out. It won a Silver Award rosette. I uploaded a video of my reading to my Youtube.
Expectations of a Future
We are but overgrown children,
trained in a time that no longer exists
for a world that never will,
stumbling through our days
with outdated road maps,
clinging to memories
of a previous normality,
encountering the fallacies
of an unpredictable future,
learning to bounce.
