I lust and want,
an unfulfillable hunger.
A starving declaration of want and the need to fulfill it.
are not vacate instead
watch imprisoned in flesh and bone
Screams and moans echo
From a cell next door….
No, I do not know….
why I cry
my tears do not speak to me,
mocking me in their silence….
No chance meeting of a lover on the streets.
Marching hooded white men armed to the teeth, pulling colored shopkeepers from their shops putting bullets to heads….
Children in cages, crying for mama and papa in a universal language but their captors won’t listen.
And The Blood Flag flys high over the White House.
No, I do not know why….
The sun disappeared
beyond the hills,
twilight bring shades
of red among the shadows.
The shadows are not frightening, when you can see what they really are in the dwindling light.
And spires of glass and steel are closer still….
Two in the afternoon,
I entered the
it’s shadows slowly
engulfs me, but
light glits off
suns among the earth.
There is no path to those suns, high up,
accept to imagine myself a bird,
then start walking….
I thought this was an interesting article.
