249x365 - armed forces neighbours ('95)

husband and wife in military
across thin walls and shared driveway
buffered small safe communications

daily exposure therapy to camouflage, march

my entrained nausea-anger at violence of uniform
("Kill all Warmongers for Peace" gut reaction)
desensitizing to functional, bodily neutrality.

Oh I love it - "Kill all Warmongers for Peace" .. and love your ability to confront yourself with awareness and humour!

- Another such gut reactor!
