Another Poem Written During Mediation

Incinerated in the holocaust
Of our own doing
We have justified
Blinding lights
And meat seared to the bone.
We look toward other’s crimes
rarely bare the bakery of flesh
From incendiaries dropped
From massive payloads
Sucking lung’s oxygen
Into massive ignitions.
The time on the clock
Is frozen to our sin,
The shadows emblazoned
To their concrete cookery.
It is our cannibalistic
Need for casualty and might
Blinding us collaterally passive
And amorally violent
In ignorance and compliance.

cannibalistic/Need for casualty and might…amorally violent/In ignorance and compliance.

Yes, that describes it exactly.

Thanks for sharing.

I don’t know why this came to me now. Just know I am focusing on redemption and salvation.
