GROUNDHOG DAY
(2/2/19)


we are
born

pulled
from our
warm
comfortable
dens

held up
for the world
to see

lights

shadows

we are
given
no choice

we can't
go back
because
we are
afraid

we don't
even know
enough
to realize
that our initial
sensation
is fear

we must
become
much older

much wiser

to realize
that our aversion
to society
goes so
far
much
deeper

than just
a matter
of lighting
