Soft seat, or hard?

We’re equal, more or less.

… Forward,

forward,

Vyborg!

… Minds on fire.

The train will reach it’s destination

regardless of heart’s desire.

Free speech on one side of the border means practically the opposite of the other.

Free? Yes, if it’s acceptable to the powers that be.

*Free?*

Not really.

They declare:

Choose which side you’re on.

Renounce as applicable,

past despicable.

I despair.

Indeed.

Society loves complicated simplification…

Reinventing the wheel,

toxic, caustic peel.

We met in the sauna.

Another time, on a river boat,

she introduced me to her young daughter.

I’d noted the scar.

Love hurts.
