at arm’s length, we

In a democracy, the voting public must grasp the exacting toll of war.
– Chris Hedges, What Every Person Should Know About War, 2003

at arm’s length, we
nurture fine romances,
perform eagerness
openly, assume we
will not fail, yet
steer clear
of holding ourselves
or one another
accountable. at a
perfectly managed
distance
, we will
barely notice the
growing disconnect
.
