before you go into your conscience car wash…

help me understand
you’re willingly supporting
a racist rapist
are you really profiting
that much from selling your soul


they’re just dying…

more friday drink rounds
no one looks up at the screen
flood victims and such
first round draft picks the topic
wished they’d continued with sports


imperceptible to some…

i hear faint heart beats
pulsing and growing each day
like molten anger
veins pumping with odium
ready to bleed uncontrolled
