a smoking thing of danger

it’s never the things we love
not our father or our mother
not our child or our bride –
it is the things we smother

which makes us

this

this other of the other

this us
who is the darkness
who is nobody’s brother

lucky you who do not have
a smoking thing of danger
that makes us look at all we love
through the eyes of a stranger
