Indifference, beat poetry written by SMiles at



written by: SMiles



Vulnerability grew naked
a cold meat dish
exposed to scrutiny
the way it would not wish

gathered by the moment
in optimism’s pocket
a promise of acceptance
wired to a socket

grasp the exposure
dance if you dare
the devil may
but they will not care

have you learned nothing?
Sitting on the fence
splinter assed indifference
makes no amends

look above the parapet
see the flesh behind the scope
dish out the latitude
let them dangle from the rope

identify the tormentors
the laugh along, behind your back
pull tight your resolve
don’t let the rope go slack

wheedle out the chaff
you need the wheat to make the bread
in order to win the girl
you must kill indifference dead.
