You are awkward, you know,

your reticence for days and days

and then your suddenly aggressive presence.

Even those who barely acknowledge you

are sneakily manipulated into hurting their loved ones.

It’s dirty.  A cruel game.

And yet, you’re the great assimilator

moving  between cultures and climates,

smooth as lies.

To threaten that you will die alone

if you continue to behave this way

is simply not true.

Somehow you hold so many hands.
