Special

Is being special
desirable after all,
or just the drawing

of a large target
on an unsuspecting brow,
easy to aim for

them, the special ones
the ones society has
singled out like goats

we tie to a stake
in a clearing to accept
our adoration,

our envy, our hate
for those different from ourselves.
We are the tigers

who consume special
so we can become special
by proximity.
