Disarming

I’ve learned to press pause with every departure
fast forward, resume to the next yearly juncture
but it’s okay now this life has made me much more selective
I like those who crave to engage
strip-down, who don’t fuss with protective
real conversations, with real eyeballs, no smoke screens
I like sobriety, I like philosophy
I like those who aspire to keep their spirits clean
I like those who aspire to say as they mean
I like those who really want to be seen
superficiality
sitcoms, shopping malls and virtual reality
we draw our curtains in nice and tight
worry about the SUV, the mortgage, the “Price is Right”
and while we all love Bob Barker our worlds are just growin
more and more unsure and uncertainI’ve learned to press pause with every departure
