Wipe Your Feet

Wipe Your Feet

 

 

They overflow with mutual respect.
You’ll step in puddles of hypocrisy
if your course isn’t perfectly correct
when you creep by their meeting. Endlessly
they repeat all the lies that they collect,
lies that support their bogus amity.
They are each other’s mirrors, smooth and flat.
There’s nothing to their smiles, aside from that.
