He put up barriers.
A closed barbed wire smile,
sandpaper frowned eyebrows,
freckled land mine cheek bones,

iceberg sized cold shoulders,
a row of house party sniper put downs,
a brittle six foot skeleton
wrapped in cactus spiked thin skin
and piranha hungry self-esteem.
He put up barriers
desperate for people to burst through.
