My Skeleton World

 

 

Each sip from the glass is a tsunami

for the sleeping, for the helpless.

 

Each gulp is a landslide shaking a few off.

 

Each piece of cloth is a new built city

with a new curtailment of freedom.

 

Each footwear is a rich corrupted betrayer

using the land for flight and not the land.

 

My skin sections call for the brutal killing of emotion

into pieces of love, hate and nothingness.

 

My flesh is unlimited wealth making me

greedier at the slightest flea sting.

 

My very breath is the open door in a cyclone.

 

My skeleton world is a combination of known,

unknown and deliberate tyrannies.
