you and us

YOU are surrounded by glass

Within that

The world

Can observe

The normality of dinner

The association of wealth

The body on the table

The watching of soaps

The entertaining of guests

The reading of books

Masturbation in bedrooms

The privacy of thought.

WE live under mirrors

And reflect them back at you

With that emotion

We coat ourselves in glycerine

And smuggle into your


But what are WE doing under there?

 what is the point?

I enjoyed the subject matter as well as the observational conundrums. Nice one.

Intriguing piece.
Who is feeding off who? I need to call the window cleaner and then still won't see the point.
