Height of Fashion

The gold,
it beams,
despite the slaughter.

The people
adorned in blood,
wearing the polished essence of humanity,
animal skins on their bodies,
human blood around their necks,
crimson-
splashed on the wrists,
dripping from the ears.

They know not what they do.
This changes nothing.
It helps not, the children,
the parentless ones-
the innocence lost,
will always be gone-
and no one,
no one,
truly,
sees.

I know what you are,
my hand touches you,
so cold-
my hand, it burns, melts-
aflame.

I see screaming,
melting, agonizing pain.
faces blistering.
gasping,
melting, shuddering,
engulfed.

Scalding tears,
I know Death-
silencing-
hope, life,
peace.

A dying world-
burning, it’s what you do-
unthinking,
you destroy,
leaving,
dust.

I allow it.
every breath, gives you life.
I hate you.
haunting dreams, klaxons,
in the night, terrorize, and dissolve me.
feeding you,
everyday.

Helpless,
you feed me, cloth me-
fill my tank,
give me, life.

Running, we race,
hoping, we
will not,
meet.

for the

gaining more,

Complaining,

and castle.
In this, great
nation
of ours.
Clobbering
hopes,
dreams,
anything
that doesn’t
benefit,
his needs
his wants
for, he needs
what he wants.
His mouth,
full,
breaking bones,
of lost ones,
who-
gotta
getta
job.
No
good,
lazy
bums,
feeding
off,

Summer Fun

Walking.

Rain steams-
off
my
body.

Empty
beaches,
Bottles
strewn.

Closed
doors.
Silent
streets.

Droplets,
magnifying-
Human
debris.

Sky
fire
blinds.
Hides.
Distorts.

Passing
others-
huddled,
hidden.

Always
struggling,
grasping,
for
life.

Walking,
seeing-
