Thin Walls © 2000/SMRamsey
What keeps me from you
and you from me? These
words are thin walls. I can
smell it sometimes....who we
let in and who we keep out.
Wars start this way.
I met a blind man.
His mirrors were filthy.
No pictures hung from the
walls. I said I was in love
with his best friend. He said
"this too shall pass".
Space is something we
claim. "Don't stand too close"
or "please come in" is a matter
of architect and maps. Cross a
line and kill or be killed. I may
or may not invite you. Barriers
When I was a kid
I climbed the roof of our
storage shed. From there I
could see the tin roof and card
board hut that housed a family.
Their dirt yard and fire pit are
what I remember. Broken jags
of glass cemented into the wall
This is how it is.
Wars start this way;
This too shall pass:
