life put me through
a colander of barbed wire
more times than i care to count
forcing me to reassemble myself
from shredded scraps

so i built a house of stone
to keep the demons out
well-mortared now i live
the door is rarely opened

knock away stranger
i hear you perfectly
but you have little chance
of seeing me
