493. Exposure



Shame on display.

Diagnosed: “There you are”.

Now what to say?


The door ajar.

If you seek, you will find,

Each cut and scar.


Nowhere to hide.

What’s visible can’t just,

Go back inside.


Stain after stain.

Grotesque is the vessel,

Holding the pain.


Words weaponized;…

Though they aren’t people and,…

Judgment’s devised.


Shame on display.

You know where they live now,

But will you stay?
