it unravels as quickly as it was sewn

a threadbare affair woven from scraps of here,

patches there,

faded and complacent as we waste away the day

beneath an escape of our own making

what’s more comforting than blissful ignorance?

this can’t last

we’d lose the security of our blankets if we stopped to count the seams
