WAR

i can smell blood
in the rain
the night it’s like
razor blades
over the brain
filled with crime
boarded up
windows
turned deadbolts
ignorant assholes
filled with
teeth knocked loose
disgusting sex &
looks that tell you
everything
i wonder if
restoring beauty is
even worth it
shit
even the wild sounds
are dead
filled with
worry & fear
the beat &
the broken
american backsides
scored in the streets
the clothes lines
have been cut
the children are fed
ritalin & adderall
the drunks
the punks
the fuckos & junkos
are tearing through
the homes
scraping & lapping up
the remains
i see all this from my
second story window
on the northwest side
of the city
writing
watching
wishing for the sun
i told you
them
someone
the end would come
right when
my poetry books
were beginning to
be read
right when
the burning started
and the city
screamed
fucking hell.
