Something's Wrong

August 12, 2015

 

 

I tell you 

something's off, 

wrong

in the way we are in this world. 

 

Can't you see it 

in 

the artless uni-visions, 

erasing diverse ontologies?

 

Can't you hear it 

in 

the pregnant lies, 

birthing foul songs of woe?

 

Can't you taste it 

in 

the blood, 

running free from blows-

one steady fist upon face?

 

Can't you smell it 

in 

the misfits' flesh

roasting from righteous indignation?

 

Can't you feel it 

in 

the untold wounds, 

emptying our souls?

 

Can't you sense it 

in 

the hope cries, 

vacating our indifference?

 

Something's off, 

I tell you, 

in this day-2-night of the living death about us. 

 

Something's wrong, 

I tell you, 

this heart knows.
