Guilt and Explanation

“Summoned, one shuffles guiltily into the Department of Trivia.”
            –John Banville
When emotion’s explanation
must be provided,
then which direction,
which answer sends
me safely home,
the wolf at bay?
As if reason could encompass
the complexities of the day
within an algorithm’s
plodding gait.
