soft bellies exposed,
ripe for the tearing, the
wolf, the critic.
The faith, the bold front
disappearing under scrutiny
before the faceless masses. What
was surety, now melting,
hardened heart hibernating
hiding, behind apron strings.
We are surrounded and
constructed of similar fabric,
paper thin construct, tearable,
crushable thinness, words and deeds
rend us, collapse us. Ill wind
shears us apart,
leaving us helpless and betrayed.
I promise I will not
huff and puff and
blow your house down. Will you
do the same for me?
