InDivided Metaphors

 

I tend to think people wear their demeanour as an armour, apart from them, protecting them in this so-much-more-complicated-than-it-needs-to-be world. 

(forgiving)

 

Maybe I should be thinking of their macho ditz as a shell or even fur, a part of them, intimate as the skin and hair that covers your body. 

(discerning)

 

But the world is so-much-more-complicated-than-it-seems-to-be and we aren’t as individual as individuals might look and their fur or shell or armour are a part of my private parts,

(responsible)

 

But if we're forgetting the metaphor of individual, then their fur or shell or armour aren't apart from their private parts either, each acting as a metaphor for their self.

(ourself)
