Why, lookie there ... it's a POEM!

Oh, you lucky people ... fresh angst, hot off my fevered brow!



                    WITHIN THE STREET


                    entry wounds ...
                    madness ...
                    so many breathe
                    that must be dead;
                    hands ache
                    to squeeze,
                    erase all visage,
                    delete their space

                    reflecting violence,
                    unfocused rage,
                    no bricks are moved
                    no chasm made
                    only pressure,
                    twisting lines,
                    and darkness driven
                    across the heart

                    days go empty,
                    bled by fear,
                    their numbers fail
                    and then revolt
                    scrambling the seasons
                    as to infect
                    all idle time
                    with creeping banes

                    how vast
                    these enemies,
                    every passage
                    a trap awaiting,
                    each exposure
                    greets with their blades
                    so deep in falsehood
                    inseparable from hate

                    the myth maintains
                    of times to come
                    of fire and blood
                    and rage unleashed
                    I see it now
                    I feel the shift
                    a tearing steel
                    that lusts to shred
