Daily missive for Monday the 21st of November.~ Vulnerability.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 21st of November.
Vulnerability.

Take shelter
It is a violent wind
That blows,
There is space
It will keep you dry.
Beneath the cloak
Of my indifference
Lies a generous soul
Or so I am told.
Even in my parlous state
Dependent as I am
On anonymity
I will brook no argument
Over your safe passage.
As the rage uproots
A carefully tended
Disguise
I am exposed to your
Sharp gaze.
Would that it was easy
To withstand
But the truth is
I wilt under the pressure
Of your expectation.
Too much too soon
Could be the death of me,
So let me be.
When this weather turns
In your favour
Just travel on,
If you look back
I will be gone.
It is my only compensation
The reinstatement
Of camouflage
Invisibility and humility.
