outsider in the dark

there is joy

to be had

living outside the tribe

in the distance a cocked eyebrow

can bring

soft smile on the lips

at the antics

at those performing for each other

reinforcing the control lines

chocking up the norms

that distance too

sees the kinship

grouping together as friends

family lines

the warmth in huddling together

against the cold

as you shiver in your blanket

the watcher

outsider in the dark
