glamorizing fear

the image game: 
we play it everywhere.
and this is not new,
though it may *feel* new.

but we’re creatures made of stories,
and little truth gets through
not delivered through
those vehicles.

through books and drama,
word and image,
glamorizing fear as though
we rule it instead of

the other way around
