we want to, always, be seen as better
raised mattress, protective barrier
a smooth function in a gullible world

let by letting

we expect self-presenting idealism
laced with absurd impatience & decorative spirituality


fear is a story
warmed by the fire of self talk
encouraged to, just stay out of sight
stayed in the habit

cycles - some more imposing than others


judgment, the coolness of
subtle awareness creeps
the complexity in simple
the simplicity in complex

we keep order, sincere compassion

jaw lowering, pious humility
(stands beside)
submerged, relapse-type reactions
(they hug)


human, we laugh
