fearing others
before they are present
is taught sideways
before any encounter

parental authority
does assist survival
even as it constrains
a new thought

every innovation
is a new person
entering the group
and suspect

old habits
do not go quietly
daytime or dark
and rail as they go

every coping skill
eventually falls
becoming fight
or innovate
