In the School of Life

ACQUIESCENCE

acquiescence
mindless escape
masking emotive eruptions
that break forth with
passionate fervor
demanding an ear
be silent! just listen
be silent and hear

so silent this outbreak
attended alone
completely engulfed
both by muscle and bone
so rigidly frozen
a portrait in space
painfully etched on a
warm-blooded face

where acquiescence
such mindless escape
masks a longing to fight
intellectual rape
