non-original sins – January 22

1.22.2016

dead bodies in

the streets

wounded pleading

faces, our enemies

at the mercy

of our whim

 

seeing our fantasies

play out in real life

is not always

pretty or

ennobling.

 

what evil lurks

in the hearts

of men

 

the shadow knew

but we weren’t

paying attention.
