Poem - Stranger’s Bane

The poem “Stranger’s Bane” speaks to my involvement on social media.

Stranger’s Bane

The drip erodes the stranger's bane
removes the taint of ignorance
when a known quantity
resolves to ease aberrant’s breadth
there are others who relate
hiding in the shadow’s depths
wishing someone would announce
kinship by the queerest vibes.

This medicine for society
determined to state a case
by example of the norm
mixed with the alternate
passing is half a gift
also a curse when it binds
acknowledgment with a glance
unfolds the creature two may share.

Dispensed by a known face
senior of so many years
distant enough to be safe
still disclosing strange magic
drawing pictures in the sand
recognized by questing minds
subtle hints that whisper softly
to the ones that strive to hear.
