par a noi a

how do you
ask strangers
if they are
aiming
their poison
at you
when the shoe
doesn’t
quite fit
but feasibly
could..

how do you do this
without sounding
like the paranoid
nutbag
you can be
at times..

we of
limited vocab
capabilities
often replicate
our adjectives
when telling
our stories
spewing
our fears
targeting
our need
for right
to simply
be right..

often, what’s
left for
interpretation
is taken
to heart
from the wrong
human
instead
of who
it was intended
for..

what then..
what can
make it
right
when the
repercussions
feel so wrong..
and no one
can step up
and ask
the question
“was that
for me,
or….
am i
just
being
paranoid..

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
