New poem by Evelyn Cole: Flash Mob

April 27th, 2014 Evelyn Cole

Flash Mob

President of Allen Hancock Community College
interrupted by a young woman dancing
A young man joins her
a few more jump in
Then a coordinated mob fills the stage
bringing me to tears of joy and
reminding me of William James
who wrote, “Man’s chief difference
from the brutes lies in the exuberant
excess of his subjective propensities.
. . . Had his whole life not been a quest
for the superfluous, he would never have
established himself so inexpugnably
in the necessary. . . .Prune down his
extravagances, sober him, and you undo him.”
