trap

some traps are easy

the great maw of steel

ringed with sharp teeth

others red lipstick

pearl whites poking through

& then the ones

that catch in the everyday

trying to understand

the why?

why do they

say do be like that

& there you are

hanging

on every word

trying to understand

& there you are

trapped in the best trap

because you don’t know

you’ve been caught
