Security Valentine

When you cross the border
First all your falsehoods
Rush out to meet you
In the form of wild beasts
Disguised as pleasure and pain
Power and passivity
Like going through security
But on the level of the soul
Before you even see the gates
You are treated badly
To test your response
Often your eyes wander off
To a particular guard watching you
With a welcoming gaze
