|What you see|
|What we see|
We found you lurking in the shadow of our words,
sycophants swallowing their own reflections;
yet in the confining recesses of the folds
where we live, an ongoing competition ensues.
Vying for selection, we decorate our meanings
with elusive verbiage. We watch as searching
eyes become airport scanners with not an inch
to spare, hoping that maybe this time we’ll pass
the test and leave a legacy for ambiguous intent.
