unpuzzling the enemy

57FA6A00-5466-455D-AE3A-752BB65C334A

hate screams black in fear, with intent
to turn listener to stone or distraction

what you think is the opposition
dressed in defenses worn comfortably

is only,       just another
scared,       eyes-wide        and searching

no different than the face in
your bathroom mirror each morning
