proliferation

This double life I lead (we. we lead)
It's small.  Nothing so large as
Keeping state secrets, hiding from assassins
Burning papers, encryption, evidence.
Nothing so glamorous as that.
A double life large enough to contain
Whatever contradictions forced upon us
And any we decide to create.
Do you ever wonder how they kept sane
Before the internet, before
The massive proliferation of double lives?
