Fences

Fences

Julianna Patterson '23

 

they are riddle 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

 

quite plainly, your fence is a brick wall.

unfortunately for you, brick walls are made with 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

 

unironically i wish you could’ve been a fence

instead of a brick wall.
