Personal Styles


Sensitizer:
They didn't want me
in Winnipeg. It comes to me
with a chill. They smiled
when I retreated, thinking
I was gone. I didn't do
a single good thing
in Winnipeg, forty years,
in and out,
incompetence
and pride.

Repressor:
I do a little
not-a-hero-jig,
watch my children's children
dance from far away,
feel the soothing
cover of scars,
away far away
over a sea of pine trees.
