, , , , ,

head heavy-hung in restless rest

late night blue light filters my mind for me

glazed eyes tune the world outside

into others’ human lives

and their picture window plights

mothers imploring plead mercy

as they cry for blood-soaked children they fear

a discarded sacrificed feast

for hungry tyranny

ever breeds corpses and war

I hide my heart to keep my mind

in cold vigil I chase Sandman’s cover

wide awake in soul-breaking shame

my own apathy

creates dreams of self-reproach
