apples and spinach … … …

​the foul odour of scarred flesh.


the reeking decomposition.


bodies once animated, once so alive, now strewn across the moist ground.



the surgical strike.


pin-point accuracy.



the smartest weapons, deployed, to decimate the bad guys.



black and brown people, more often than not, pummeled to a pulp, black and blue.



while LCD screens miles away, surveill, scanning for potential targets, the unknown other.



the evil doers,



as mothers and daughters, pick out apples and spinach


in a market-place in the cross-hairs

no blue monday for you

no blue monday for you

when tears moisten your eyes
and the horizons seem leaden
weighed down by grey skies

when
everyone
everything

suffocates
and life seems like a sad circus
a comical convergence of fates

may you always
always

pause …
to
remember …

that
you are human too

and
that
you feel

deep in your marrow
your entire being through

the sting of griefs fire
and
the ache of unquenched desire

felt
deep

felt true
within you
