FEAR

 

I’m not scared

 of the last  “dangerous” neighborhood featured on the nightly news

I don’t fear same sex couples, communists or homeless men

so-called terrorists

Nor “foreigners” on “our shores”

not afraid of the drug war

I’m afraid of how we keep defining and redefining human 

to keep someone else out

worry about fear and fear-baiting and

how we encage our brains 

fear the way we cast blame

And fear more of the same
