Blood and bone


vague feelings
around morality
words of wisdom
written on crumpled
sheets of paper
and this bin
where things are thrown

here we are
tossed
and
turned
within the binding
perspectives
of freedom
and the absurd

it’s then we realize
there’s no one
in fucking charge

The slaves


democracy
is that thin
hopeful illusion
that separates
the haves
from
the have nots

a demarcation
point
that points
in only one
direction

down
into the abyss
where
only the haves
get to escape

as for the rest
of us?

well the pyramids
had to be built
by some silly
fool

All you need is love (For the 17)


love is all
you need…

of course
there’s also
a million
pieces
of humanity
shooting
stabbing
bombing
&
raping
the fuck out
of each other
as I scribble
these words
on this blank
sheet
of paper
