Someone will say


Someone will say
it’s more complicated than this

a voice in your head
you can’t dismiss

simplicity is beneath you
love bores you

peace
is an idle wish

life
a tasteless kiss

I had so far yet to go
your unread epitaph

                                               unless

We wish for change, but when it comes we run for fear. I have no idea why this poem brought that response? Curiouser and curiouser.

Well, while a magnifying glass won’t help, chances are another reading or two will. But your response is hardly far afield.
