Acquisition

It’s best not to think
about why;
it’s just as well believing

what we’re told.
This translates into nothing
we’ve been told

of critical thinking.
Yet the mind opens so much
as to even admit

fault.
Culture is not thought
but absorbed –

its weaknesses not only words
but innocence
wherein they’re learned.

The broken cycles they begin
crimp the tangents
of invention.
