Early Indicators

Adding a glaze of poison to every bit of daily bread,
it accumulates; weightless snowfall over ice until,
subject to the least provocation and deadly,
it waits, laden.

The last straw
breaks silence until
swallows whole.

Oh, and courage is to point to the lies believed,
the early indicators of hidden dangers.
Oh, and courage is to speak them,
to reveal them, voracious.
