there is a boa

there is a boa
constrictor
inside
all of us,
one to several
slithers
away from the
strangle.

against place
of birth, rearing,
religion and
politics, all
of the categories
and identifiers
used to
draw the fine
threads between
wild and tame,
impulse and
restraint,
us and them,
reason is screwed
on ever so
tightly.

the only difference
between me and you
is how tight
.
