Messaging is lost

in modern safety

all shrill alarms

and shatterproof glass

as we cluster houses

one upon the other

regulated walls

in regulated lives

while within us

a madman screams

to raise the drawbridge

to fetch a sword

to fill the moats with snapping turtles

for safety is an army

and a stone castle on high ground

imposing and impenetrable

sending silent warnings to all – Caroline A. Slee
