How long can you hold your breath?

We cloak our intentions

with garments woven from

a world that cares only about self.

Colors of explicit and electric

bending the mind’s eye to unrelenting

exposure, call us to walk

around deadened emotionally naked

to attain feelings void of pain.

In a neon sear, tattooed ink

has covered the lesions of

self inflicted scarring.

Where does it end? We cry out for

relief, for a Savior, a new world order

an immediate fix for the immediate gratification

we have cultivated in shallow furrows of

over used soil.

Garments of fibers grown from reconstructed genes, barely worn,

as techno seclusion sequestered in open forum

leeches our future, our hope.

How can a rose survive…this?
