Can’t help but be a bit buoyed by it,
not that it’s an expression of faith –
nothing like that, more perspective
with a ‘neutral’ point of view stated
plainly enough to avoid a clear bias

But sass in the form of impartiality
doesn’t make divergence easier to
conciliate, nor drawing back to what
is neutrality weakened you’d agree,
and only making sense for you

The thought counts though and it
comforts – clumsy love complete
in bruised embrace is nonetheless
love better presumed than a clash
cruelled with egos duly deflated
