Sideways glances out
past the point of no return
waiting for those audio cues that result
in uproarious applause.
Framing the points of life
now held most dear
to someone other than myself.
And in the dstance
the mist rises from the trees
at the edge of the forest
and the animals have disappeared
or similarly
they’ve changed their stripes
prefering instead
to hunt under the banner
of the civilized.
