smells like charred
flesh when you put
your nose to the dirt
& inhale -

blood stains every
-thing into rustic
dreams (nightterrors)
& it tastes like sulfur,
sweat, & decomposition

redwhiplash onto skin
& bullets embedded
like body mods for
the shockfactor
exceptitsnotforthat

see the man running
down the road--
he has a bomb
strapped to his back
suicideforacause

listenlisten - hear the screams of the innocent

remember that
remember that
