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.
