staring down the sharp edge of an eclipse
eyes wide and waiting
veins begging for full-dark taste

survival snaps to the foreground
New world texture is more teeth than blanket
brain and body soft but getting less so
mind unfaded, purpose a fistful of
Run like you mean it.
Spill blood like it’s instinct.
Nothing left to
A Poem for Overthrowing the Bourgeoisie.
I’m reading Nightfall by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg, hence the poem. Riding out some slow-waved depression. It comes and goes. Sometimes I wake up and I feel okay. Last night I didn’t even sleep at all. Halfway through a 16 hour shift. Didn’t know I could even do that on no sleep. Hm.
