    The damned are reinvigorated

    in the twilight


    their husks


    suffused with a new and

    unwholesome potency,


    their staggered steps increasing


    to a torrent as they

    shamble toward us


    these bad dreams that we have

    chosen as our affliction


    acting as comparably pleasant

    obstacles to block our view


    of the deeper poisons in which

    we wade,


    the stagnant demesne

    of the dim priests who have

    gone mad on the power


    we favored them with

    so long ago


    and all

    the peripheral functionaries

    who benefit just enough



    the acts of tyranny that they

    keep silent as the good blood

    runs deep and thick in the



    the salve of our

    small remaining kindness



    by the end of the

    work week and replaced by

    numb incomprehension


    until there is

    but a small cognitive

    leap between flipping on

    the television set



    leaping upon a stranger at a

    filling station, feasting upon

    his flesh until the authorities



    to drill high velocity

    relief channels in our tombs

    of flesh.




    1. Yes! This is a powerful piece, and once again demonstrates your versatility as a writer. It’s always good to see more of your work.
