the resistance

A retaliatory slant
  stinging in your blood
   keeping your mouth
                            shut

  you hear warnings before
      you find sleep & rest does
                                   not come simply
       there’s only you and us is
            never    lost to afterthought
                 
              souls bind and dancers fail
            to keep up with the music ringing
                  [ in the background ]
                       start wishing you
                                          had a ticket to
                                                  the show

              we’re all actors on stage
                 but when the curtain falls
                     the mask comes off

           the subtle hatred that there was
               ever a need for one persists
