as bulbs go

I detest the stress of this mess
and only want what’s best.
But I’m a guest–my
observations are
incorrect and everyone is on the
defense:
pretending
that we’re friends.
Who instilled this climate
of
social paranoia in the sad and
disenfranchised rest?
Eyes are meant to shine and vie
for life
always madder for more still,
not dimmer, dulled, and
burnt out as bulbs go.
