dancing around

As you dance around

the elephant

and insist

you don’t want to argue,

I have to wonder

who it is

your argument is with?

Are you really

addressing me?

The assumptions

confuse me;

the protest seems

misdirected.

Why, exactly,

is there

such need

to defend

your bliss?

Who is it, I wonder,

that I’m standing in for

in this self-directed drama?

And why is he

or she

being projected onto me?

I must say:

We have had better dances.
