  terror firmer

the water around us
in ripples distorts
so our mouthfuls of words
don't connect to our thoughts

insecurity measures
the length of our laugh
our demeanour obscures the
importance of half

of the shapes that we drag out
from dragnets of sound
think and sink in the mud
disappear underground

will we learn of compassion
through being unkind
will we all die protecting
our own piece of mind

keep on twisting your mouth
from a sneer to a grin
turn and watch for the sign
let the torture begin
