Passive Stairway

living

Morphed language to disarm your truth

Redefined words to leave you naked

Now go away and hide while I dance with your shame

Become a shadow

An occupier of the outskirts

While I glory in authoritative repetition

Pick it up and pass it on

you believe it’s true

The circus mirror skews all perception

Clowns clowning in that direction

Until a broken nail hooks your pant

Clarity for a moment
