A blanket

A blanket of ignorance.
Shrouded normative,
discordant human.

A blanket of suffering.
Inflicted creature,
dictated by sorrow,

A blanket of warmth.
Rescue and hope,
liberation of moment.

A blanketed joke.
A poke of tom foolery.
Saddened, crooked,
suffocating, hopeless.

A liars blanket.
Shaping history.
Removed by
revelation of truth.

An evolving world
for connection,
soulful and true.
