How Some Take Care


No one talks about
how a hollowed out heart
beats like a robot
on automatic pilot

No one notices the walking zombie masquerading
as a happy well adjusted human being
who sleeps like the dead, awakes tired
reboots for another automated day

No one sees past the facade
shields up like the Starship Enterprise
because letting one’s guard down
may lead to total destruction

No one is aware of the tightrope walker
carefully placing one foot in front of the other
lest they fall and require mopping up
like spilled jelly on the floor
