Feeling Not Safe

when well enough becomes

a lie


lika an old television drama

doc walks in

he smiles

everyone looks around the room


yet suddenly he

the doc

notices something outside

the window

– an opportunity –

to sidetrack the meaning.

Doc says outloud

everyone can hear.


the landscape has begun to change.

sad really, your life is no longer your own.

the Doc glances back at all the people

in the room … waiting on his answer.


suddenly little Jimmy and Alice look at each other,

his beautiful smile has become all of our pain.
