Exoskeleton

by Kenneth Vincent Walker


Blessed and cursed
With an exoskeletal
Mind reaching beyond
The limits of what Man-
Kind has yet to uncover.

With findings uncoerced,
Intellectualized in verse
In a manner ill-suited
For many of the most
Uncompromising.

For what could be worse
Than to meander though
Life with a thirst for know—
Ledge wearing a perverse
Blindfold of coarse, cold

Metal darkness oxidizing?
