Sacrificial Hiccups

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by dc

From the unmarked graves
On the cusps of dusty hills,

To the messages on fallen walls
In the hearts of war torn towns,

There is a need to just
Pause and take breaths

Now there’s nothing left
But the icy sheened eyes

Of the puppets
And the infamous thieves,

The blood on the chins
Of the ruthless,

And the stains that shouted loudest
Through rectified dark skies.

They forgot
They’d created
Killing machines,

Emotionless mongrels
Armed with loop-holes
And gunfire,

All broken
And glass eyed,
Youths steady growling,

In shadows surrounding
The piled flesh
And silence,

Secrets
And whispering
Schemes.

Dreams
Like explosions.
