Face to face

Far from home’s secure chimera
I walked into a room, reluctantly, to face cacophony
(comprised, however, largely of indifference);
imagining I’m branded otherwise
beside the marks of humdrum bourgeoisie –
Berghaus, Next, Levi’s – I wear as emblems day-to-day;
feeling as if the lines anxiety has scratched
around my eyes were welling blood
