Alchemy of the Sole

what lies beneath

 

somehow

it seems impossible
to embrace joy
amidst the chaotic violence
surrounding all sides, reaching up to the heavens
in the many faces of right
   (we all want to be)
it has begun to crumble, the justice of all and thus for none
weight upon weight upon weight, bomb after bomb after bomb
slashing through the earth, what we can show for progress
crush the hearts till ribs splinter
rain is no longer water but cordite
cracks break the surface
lighting bolts of panic activism and dissention  
rumble to the beginning
leaking tears and blood of millions, here in this hearth and from ages past since the first twinge of carnage annihilation
hundreds of thousands again and again
I have been the murderer and the victim
slung shit with the rest of them
somehow
somehow!
I still smile when I see you breathe
