said just like that

Racism,
misogyny
anti-Semitism
philandry
conservative
liberal…
hate
said just like that, no
flowery background context, no
squint in the eye, no
reason other than
to say it…and we lose
our minds;
hardwired? Were our minds
ever ours when
what we don’t know about them
is an ocean
what we do know;
a drop
and we look at ourselves
with microscopes
and CNN, with
cash in hand
we buy our thoughts online
sell our
outrage
to the highest bidder…we ask
does society invent
or exploit
am I destined
you
us
to create walls cages
steel and concrete boxes
stacked
on top of us
protecting our insanity
and the
complex
simplicity
of opening our eyes
to a new
day.
