I, miserable cretin. Two words shy of an unworthy diatribe. Two lost pens in the ink of never was. and I, the link chain that broke with rust and time. I, belief scattered, collected, compressed.  I, fear.  New days, challenges, breaking waves in rhythmic disbelief. Nature consorted against all things, and still for all things, and still yet, indifferent.  We, a never was. We tragedy sitting beseeched by the flickering, the foretelling of fortunes. The swallowing of cities and wars to quench a thirst. One which rose in consuming. One which laid waste and still the barren consequence of love. You, falling from orbit. A jagged thing made smooth by eons. You, erupting, pleading to rise, begging to survive attached and predictable.  Them, a derivative of us. Never knowing where the garden was. Them, steel, serrated, and cold to the touch. Them, marching, beating their drums.  I, the view. I, the compromised bleating sheep incapable of seeing things through bird’s eyes. I, a compromise of humanity. I, still consuming as the weak ones lay starving. In harvest where grain never was. A commodity. A system of trade engaged gives way to a system where slaves pave the way for profits and bleeding equalities. Fictitious, a right. Conceived from necessity. Unfurling rancid petals in a rain just as toxic. We, the harbinger dressed so fantastic in glittering glasses and pants made of plastic. We, the spastic over achievers of history, dancing in delight of all we manufacture in places where alters consume old alters, consuming. You, the idle womb. You, an untold truth.   I, being eaten alive by a cellular device. I, tried. I, tried. I, tried. Three lies. One cruel mouth and Two dry eyes. They. They is the monster. They is the prey. But we, we are the they. You, me, the inbetween where energy unseen by a perfect eye dances in a spectrum of light, known only by the creator heard laughing.
