Trampled Pearls & Innocent Swine

when did it become insult not to cherish,
and unforgivable not to include in all things?
when did greeting demand acquaintance,
acquaintance demand friendship,
and friendship demand all intimacy?
when did it become subversive to guard what is precious,
to hide what is misunderstood,
and to protect what is brittle?
ah, I see! I see why you are so tired, so dissipated.
you are dividing a heart among thousands, and punching
entry tickets at the door of the secret of your soul.
