red velvet hammer

these animals that have starved to
death with their stomachs full of
plastic and technology

these beaches black with blood

did you want to be loved?

have you swam through the
filth of 200 years?

ask for lorca and i’ll give you himmler

i'll give you the shovel
                    the rifle
the bones of his children and
what would you build from them?

who would you nail them to?

hold history up to any mirror
and what you have is the future

throw the people you no longer need
into the street and wait for them
to come crawling back

kiss the pain from
their silent faces
