Rage Around

A battle sometimes rages
between the constantly curious, 
and the curiously questioning ones.

A choice of nobody's choosing --
we realize our category
by the slight anguish we feel
when meeting those others.

A cloud of rage floats all around --
mostly subdued, but sizzling at times.
Debilitating only when we allow.

wrong-right, democrat-republican,
constantly curious - curiously questioning,
no matter.
The honest exchange while listening, matters.
