Non-Defensive Defensive

A long exhale
doesn’t pole dance enough
as it won’t shake up the shaken up from shaking off

these planks
these walk-alongs
these everyday sour patch kids

licking their lips at the telepathy
snarling for mercy
to gain entrance into a pool of wonder

each with their own secrecy
scenery
alibi country

holding arms in arms’ reach
just in case
the case breaks down and ants may enter

and lay bare the natural state
