Snug in your cocoon

Surrounded by a confined style you are accustomed to

Why waste time thinking of anything outside your small world

When it is certainly more comfortable to ignore the unknown?


The only time you take the time to burst out

Is to build an even bigger cocoon which –

Surprise, surprise! encapsulates the smaller cocoon;

A medley of cocoons, naturally representative

Of the comfort you take

In making layers that pad the very core

Of your unbound ignorance.

I’m thinking of making voice notes about some of the stuff I discuss after my poems; I feel its more intimate and certainly more engaging.

Please let me know in the comment section what you think about the idea 🙂
