2020-11-16 – Stranger in a Lawn Chair

that stranger in the
lawn chair
looks..

like he was born
and raised
there,

so? why do
i care?

++++

well, let’s just
say i used
to..

fence my eyes
in razor
wire

so when passing by
i’d scratch..

his surface with
each glare

++++

until, one
day..

i took a deep breath
in his chair
and..

i’m now
parked there,

deflecting my
own razor
stares,
and..

it feels
fair.
