guard

instructions say

guard your thoughts

so i set my jaw

determine to master

what seems a simple skill

but the scene

inverts ghoulishly

my mind

the house

but these vicious dogs

refusing to turn on intruders

set their teeth instead

at me

i mace 

my own eyes

i summon the authorities

yet it’s me that lands 

in prison

even there

locked out

not in
