Dangerous Lives

Judgmental little monsters
jumping on a park bench trying to impress
they push and pull while seeking appreciation
attention.

Dangerous lives bending together
to create something
unsure of itself
even at the best of times.

These little beasts
run
when faced with adversity.
They yip in fear
like an injured dog
running for whatever they perceive
as safety.
It’s then that you understand
what they value
even when it’s of no aid
to them at all.
