Harm’s Way

They tore into the cities / invading and occupying homes / staked like territorial wounds / to the mass graves / of our ancestors / limitless access / the flames of power / fueled by delusion / take whatever is left / from the wood pile / and burn it / burn the rest /

A dangerous grief / foreshadowed / the ruins / of a shackled war zone / the potential of all that could become / buried beneath / hues of apathy and stone / careful now / with what is found / the weather is about to turn /

I would have kept their secrets / protected them as faithfully / or as often / as gold is stripped /from an original mind / they knew of / possibly saw / the exploitation/  all the blood / yet silent / for years possibly /

I was violated motherfuckers/  we all were / the word / no / was never a part of the equation / those who spoke out / against the crimes / were rumored to be insane / as if insane / was the worst thing to be / loons / some whispered / some whispered it louder than others / so we were never to be believed /

We are human beings / goddamit / people / freely accessed / stalked / to the blackest rooms / of our minds / I remember counting the ridges / on the cellar floor / in and out of consciousness/ mockingbird incantations circling / the barely audible / fire / of my dying mind / Even in my most liberated wastelands / there were never any questions / to refuse./
