When did everything become so fragile
and did talking stop being enough
I avoid converting to party to the debate
preserving my objectivity simultaneously
withdrawing eventually
reluctant to accept conflict
to accept defeat
and count hair line fractures.

When did fragility invade everything
and conversation draw to a halt
a word in actions
as actions ignore words.
Choose your own priorities
undermine those of others
until they break
then run and hide, cowardly.

When did fragility lose fragility
beyond the point of no return
the cement become unstuck
the fire climb the capillaries
drawn towards a feeling of entropy
a destructive force finally
but blind to its wrongs definitely.
