Artificial Overkill

I.

verbatim
an arrogant pause
apart and
beyond
a cemetery for
all the little
explosions that
escape
from our mouths

encrypted in
the babble
the dark horse of
myth
deteriorates
like a terminal roach
expletive
volcanic heart
rhetoric is the
sunny side
of the rainbow
dreams, the
frailest of human
obligations

II.

i don’t know
where the
money grows
or why our
hands are
inflamed
with the
salt of
regret

III.

(have you informed
the gods that you
are alive
and ready to be
up and #trending?)

tender is
the voice of
the lover you
haven’t met
yet
the unconditional
power of feeling
