Forced Interactions and Social Tedium

Forced interactions,

      and bring on will of apology.

I do not mean to be crass,

nor is my agitation personal.

Forced eavesdropping,

creating self imposed tedium.

The advice of the sages,

don’t be so hard on yourself.

Don’t beat yourself up,

but don’t beat them up either,

      they do no wrong,

    nor do you,

          it is simply the emotion

of a the place and time,

it is the attitude of

a protective caution,

the product of tedium,

the product of social fears.
