people spray your familiar places with poisonous gases.
People continue meeting you there nonetheless.
people carry with them knives in the shadows.
People cut with their peace.
people roll back and forth on their mattress when it is no more comfortable.
People change it.
people go back to crumbs and strangers’ tables.
People prefer to starve a little.
We are equalized however we can.
We equalize however we can handle.
We fill up however we have learned to.
Thankfully, there are still familiar places, shadows, and leftovers.
