Indoctrinate

do we ever question

the illusion

of culture ?

~

young children

understand

a watch

is still a watch

when upside-down

~

a triangle

is still

a triangle

~

letters, numbers

dictate different rules

~

a letter “p”

becomes a “d”

flipped horizontally

becomes a “b”

~

same shapes

different interpretations

~

we’re all strange symbols

~

My Stranger

introduced

unrecognizable

~

denying

emotion, impulse

concealed from view

~

you’re a fool

blindly searching the sun

~

under the surface

darkness

uncontrollable, unexplainable

natures

~

look into the fire

understand instinct

I’m part of you

~

look into the sun

blindly no more

~

raise your cup

to light, to truth

~

My Stranger
