Beauty lulls us into complacency
forgetting the danger that lies
in the civilization outside of our door
we wear our polite mask
trained through generations
into pleasantness and a non-threatening manner
but the savage within us
returns as surely as our planet tilts
our memories flow in our blood
and we begin to shed the too-tight skin
in which we have caged ourselves – Caroline A. Slee
