I’m relaxing

I’m relaxing.
Relaxing, as I watch the divisive contagion run its course.
People are disagreeing…
The divisive contagion is smarter than most people.
I’m watching it transfer from person to person.
Friend to friend to family to stranger it goes…
It flows.
Unseen but seen.
It knows no commonality.
It binds a passive mind.
Suppresses the reason.
Arrests higher judgement.
Reduces it to its own agenda.
But my favorite of all its symptoms…
Is its ability to infect those who disagree with it…
That’s power.
But not the power I’m relaxing in.
