I Heard the News Today

The media hunts

Following tracks and droppings

Left in the strut zone

Stark stories being fed

Down a trapdoor with teeth

Starving for misery’s texture

A tongue of loose fleshy flames

Flicking sparks of inhumanity

Into the furnace burning in my chest

Damper open in hopes of a dampening rain

To settle inside me

Instead of a coiled snake that needs release
