Gloria’s Vainglorious Displacement: Boucs émissaires dans la piscine


Your domestic strife
cumbers every interaction...
Suspecting the worst,
fears become projection...
Tainting your ‘tude
magnifying every infraction...


In your pool, horsing around...
chlorinated water up the nose
gagging, snorting, sputtering,
incapacitated...

Take it out on the convenient friskies
innocent, fun-loving aquanauts...

The unexpected admonishment from on deck:

“Get off my property”
