Tearing them down
and building them up
– walls of comfort to
support my insecurities
– righteous purity
from my belly erupts
as your eyes betray you’re
not hearing but fearing me.

If I spent some time
behind the walls of a friend
could I learn a different
way to walk the path?
Would the universe
to my will finally bend
if I tried rolling in glitter
instead of wrath?

Either way be careful
as you approach
– the tuning of my temperament
may wax and wane
– for behind the grid
you seek to broach
remains a wilderness
as of yet untamed.
