We have heard it all before
of love between nations
Crosshatched with devious diplomacy
Social Solidarity a contradiction in terms
facile, posturing states of mind
A profound rejection of self-interest
in the name of truth, purportedly not invited
into the fashionable salons of the elite
Always asserting a displacement,
the privileged confidants of secular kings
those hungry panthers prowling for their next prey!
Where Do I Belong?
The future coming closer and closer
The already gone, swivelling repetitions
a dystopian reality, my mind falling from itself
into nowhere, into a black hole, into abyss
Hope, a sempiternal illusion
hot metal melting into nothingness
veritable census of the dead
where do I belong?
Existence slipping between parallel universes
a hundred shades of gray and snowflake obsidian
my desire for place always denied
between now and forever, I rappel down into oblivion
Walking down my way to hell,
my sins start flashing through my mind.
My innards are burning,
apocatastasis or eternal condemnation?
Sin will always take you further
than you had planned to go,
costing more than you had intended to pay,
keeping you longer than you had wanted to stay.
Paranoia of the Self-Hunt
The world is full of selfies
not us-ies or you-ies.
a narcissistic bunch of greedies
troubling their own house
Swells with dark clouds
Thunder rumbles and claps
Big, fat drops ping off the glass roof
