Useless

I am almost out of ideas
tired of this excavation
clawed through skin
sutured it up
only to rip it apart again
smoothed over bone
chipped away cartilage
suctioned out the fluids
leaving a fragile shell
hollow and delicate

Drained on the page

I wanted to send out words
rain them onto the world
like fireworks
sparkling with hope
booming with utility
but war still ignites
kindness still retreats
and the black boot goes on kicking
the shit out of the powerless
