We see things

the horrors we live with

& for those who know nothing

of any of these

we need to pick our words carefully

give them the truth too soon

& they will turn away

despise it as untrue

yet take too long in the tale

& that is what truth becomes

a saga

& so we dance carefully

not on the edge of our own reason

but yours

for yours

is the timorous truth

the beware of beasts bothered

where ours feels the horrors

knows their terrors

yet we must carry

you carefully

too
