A Speck of Me and All of We

Duxnor-1050443

Detail of old graffiti

It’s a complicated world,
so much is happening.
I’m torn, damaged,
yellow with fear
and try to stare straight ahead.
I trust my smart phone,
suspect dumb people,
and never suspect that my phone isn’t smart
merely obedient
and that I myself are more obedient than smart
because people aren’t so dumb
just frightened and obedient
like me.
Me!
I don’t really stare straight ahead.
How can I when I’m always looking at me?
Me!
There’s something comforting about me
even though it’s torn, damaged
and yellow with fear,
too obedient to doubt what it’s told,
too frightened to see
the world isn’t so complicated
if I stop thinking of me
and see that what’s happening
is not only happening to me,
but happening to WE.
