they are riddled with holes

identical to you


although the fences holes are for visibility

visibility to the other side


ironically yours perform oppositely.

they are there so you can’t see to the other side


your fence is a brick wall.

unfortunately for you, brick walls are made of cement and bricks


cement and bricks, pile on top of each other

piled on top of you, on top of the weight you’re already carrying


most of the time

that’s what I end up talking to


fences are made intertwined within the neighboring metal

although seemingly complicated, its somewhat simple


i wish you could’ve been a fence

instead of a brick wall.
