Hidden

Desire.

Unrelenting but held in

the divisions of life.

Silences.

The unsaid needs that

can’t be met.

Surface.

The day’s ritual talk

wired in the zone of comfort.

Hunger.

Yearnings manifestly deep but held captive.

 

For all this there still can’t be change,

for change is risk and change is fear,

and fear is the sinister glue

that binds beyond salvation.
