slipping dripping breathless gripping
cataleptic poses slowly nowhere creeping
holding it in for fear that anyone will hear
the cracking bone
the sickened killing blow

racked, shake. cry or laugh again -
can't know which
through all this rip

tear, shear, rage against a tidal fear
a drowning man
an undertow
deathgrip

eyes are walls (a stop at which reality
prevented, awaits incomprehension).
a never-ending serial, a parade of condescension
piety, a new holy self-reinvention

a subtle force, within yet alien
draws the Earth up to your face
swallow these words speaking is unheard
breathing in futility
in motion

the perpetual truth: no one can hear you
blades listen better
than mother could
or would

from apathy to you, there is born a new truth
no home
nor harbor
you stumble and nothing's bent just broken

trashed, break. try to laugh again -
can't quite reach
through all this rip

tears, fears, break against a barrier
that drowns a man
in overflow
deathgrip

eyes are walls (a stop at which reality
prevented, awaits incomprehension).
a never-ending serial, a parade of condescension
piety, a new holy self-reinvention

a subtle force, within yet alien
draws the Earth up to your face
swallow these words speaking is unheard
breathing in futility
in motion

the perpetual truth: no one can hear you
blades listen better
than mother could
or would

from apathy to you, there is born a new truth
no home
nor harbor
you stumble and nothing's bent just broken

blackened iron gates for pain cannot keep it out nor in
and magnetic tongues
it seems to have for this

where can one small rock stand
on this wounded Land
ash-blasted desecrate
cannot emptiness abate

you were not made for this -
constitution slips
suddenly, though
over years

Not one refuge
is left to you
standing on the edge anonymous
and decomposed
