worn out with the unclaimed freight of bankrupt words lying heavy in the hold of my heart i strangled the muse at sundown and surrendered clothes and all to sleep
the night was warm the windows open to air not quite thick enough to need the highpitched costly whine of a/c and awoke to sirens slicing through the pitchblack funhouse of an interrupted dream
those sirens never stopped the doomscream echoing round the room maddened me i shot down the stairs into the street almost slipping in the bright red blood filing my nostrils with the scent of death
i couldn't tell what happened and didn't want to know because it happens all the time sometimes around the corner sometimes across the sea and my knowing wont change a thing every day blood flows and the wind carries that acrid hemoglobin tang to the four corners of this wretched earth
the sky was muddy with smoke and stars and furious i stalked the pavement trying to calm down i found myself outside a church a palace to a god who never was its golden cross a calf cast by charlatans gleaming through the haze
if i'd had matches i might have burnt it down no god of love could sanction this a world where manhood's marked by blood and broken bodies and killing is the remedy of choice for difference for disagreement
next time i'll close the window flip the a/c high better to pay the bill endure the whine than be trapped in blood and blackness ankledeep in scarlet surrounded by the evidence of our delusions ~ copyright 2016 RC deWinter
