can become a sport
akin to talking.
Like sound, nerves travel in waves.
move furthest or
they impact hardest, nearest
Breeding nerves can appear smart;
like ultra concerned about an issue
until the audience leaves,
then nerves return to feed on you
Animals breed nerves too.
Might simply be a survival instinct.
Maybe for humans too.
