Assault Upon the Edifice

by: Allen Killian-Moore

passive aggression
permeates folds of
thick winter clothes
surrounding every
inch of tightened skin
while the struggle to be real
has become an impasse
verging on psychological
subjugation

so that some will suffer
for lacking fraudulence
with many forthright
travelers taken as
an assault upon
the edifice of
this county’s
subdued
citizenry

as each
unspoken
word suffocates
on the edge of an
incomprehensible
blunder
