Your life feels like an audience of one
one will not hurt you
criticize you
burst you
one will not shrink you
humble you, like they probably need to.

Don’t tell others what you’re doing
or plan to do.
That way, you are answerable to no one
if you fail.

Your life is a supervised injection site,
a safe-space of confirmation
of do no harm (primum non nocere)
where we practice ego hygiene together
and echoes are the only answers.
