and then one day to find
all men are little boys
all women little girls
not yet finished searching for love
               and magic;

bumbling through it all
sometimes with a best friend-
playmate, trouver of soul kept secrets
sometimes not ;

afraid to merely await death,
allowing walls to be built
          eyes shuttered
     coffins sealed
protecting the dead or living
-both rationalizations

never touching ice-cold rigour
we remain unaware of it in ourselves
until fascination replaces fear
as we slice one another open
to find what we are truly made
