destruction of perfection

annual plans to build perfection

within institutions succeed rarely

but he said “It is good.”

and they agreed 

validated it 

stamped approval

by extending index fingers

while the fearless four bow in respect 

of the fearless four

covering the most basic of instruction 

the measurable 

and though marks on benches

suggest incompetence 

a simple “yes ma’am”

suggest the immeasurable likewise 

and at the point of mass recognition 

comes the beautiful destruction of perfection

the disruption of a permanent fixation

on the temporal 

and we are all better

and bitter

and crying

and scared 

and vulnerable 

and strong enough

strong enough

strong enough 

to await the annual plan to build

perfection

and anxiously await the destruction of it
