beware of the fluorocarbons
the teflons, the scotchgards
manufactured protectors
of what may we ask?

what do we risk?
to what do we surrender
when seeking the easy
and the speed to suspend?

suspending the need
to be careful and tidy
to walk with awareness
and avoid life’s spills

are we scotchgarding our lives
eliminating our comprehension
of the very intricate weavings
of how we choose to live?
