Poem: Unsatisfying Dialogues

arctic

I hate to be estranged from you
To be treated as a stranger
With defensive formality
When we should be cleaving to one another
Wearing masks and armor
We issue lies to one another
Through carefully hewn slits
We might as well
Drag our lawyers into the situation
So that they can do the lying for us
When did we become so false?
But I am still naked underneath
And I want you to take off
The fearful garb that is oppressing you
So that we can invest in light once again.
