Menacing Indulgence 


Grasping desperate, 

bleedng weakly

on my gasping razor bite

  so deceived and fragile,

  you know we can’t afford to  fight.

Rotting words are drooled 

 or swallowed-

Feral rumors never rise

beyond the sutured crusty surface;

weeping,

 but will never cry.

Menacing indulgence,

masks we so politely wear-

Glittering in poisoned guile 

and meaningless despair..

So much hail

and raining anger,

nesting in our vacant eyes-

Mocking, careless cruelty

 displayed in strangled, pleasant smiles.

This is how a lovely songbird 

falls upon an urban street

and slowly dies in crowded thunder,

crushed by blind, determined feet.
