Step by step

A dance of avoidance

We circle around



A

Safe

Home,

A

Strong

Hold,

A

Suffocating

Hand



 

Is this complete?

It’s been completed.

 

Finished

Tie a ribbon

Stick a bow

Make it look pretty

Put it on a shelf

Hide it in a corner

Are you surprised?

Watch it sparkle

Look at the glow

Inspect the crinkles

A solid

Held by a seen transparency

Pass it person to person

What’s inside

Can you see?

Do you care?

The first to tear

Needs the repair

Keep it pristine

For the next

For the next

We need to keep the image

Keep it clean

Boxed in

Wrapped tight

Hold hands
