I can’t begrudge him that
disagreement is allowed
seeing as we are so diversified
humans come with different capacities
somewhere along the line we carved narrow passageways
disallowing divergence
divisiveness grew when we could no longer transgress these corridors
returning to the expanded view where walls crumble to become fertilizer for the fields long neglected
I think this is what we crave.
thinking these carvings tell a story of learned experience
we’ve created a world with definitions too tight to button.
he lives his way experiencing what he will
I live mine hoping
for more.
