People Pleasing

Smoldering
impetuous
urge

to grant

the self-indulgent
perseverations
of another man’s whims

in arduous
vain attempts
to please…

to keep
– at best
a precarious peace
sacrificing
prosperity
& rest

inane
delirious deference
to copiously unmeasured
grand gests

I give
blindingly brilliant
searing
white daylight,
to a seamless
labyrinth
without hope
of egress

provoking
the poignant
potential
of self-annihilating
explosive
implosion
