Careful, for the tiger’s stripes
Are meant as a distraction
Undoing, ribbon by black-painted ribbon,
The mind off its balances.
Inside pretty painted shapes
Our dirt and sand skeletons
Nasty, you called out and my fists
Orange cones, the nastiness I displayed proudly.
Multitudes repeating purple
Ripped, torn or
Shapes of caution.
Solipsist, maker of reality
Overindulgent in your own fakery
Rows and rows of synthetic truths, rows and rows.
