Poem: “Reality”

At first, there is you.
Then there is reality. And then,
there are memories.

Memories mix with realities.
These memories are in you—this dissonance is really in you.

Anger, pain, exclusion, fear-and-paranoia.
These feelings are in you—these feelings are really in you.

Reality is hard to capture, to defeat, or to at least soften—but it is really in you.
