law of cruelty…

zealots

hate clings to our souls
refusing to be dislodged
prayers relieve the pain
but it still remains inside
it’s existence’s parasite

 

 

the pursuit of happiness..

the pursuit of happiness

i was struck
by her ornate
fingernails
so
finely sculpted
like the ones
i saw at airport
while leaving home
such styles
seem to be
worldwide
i hadn’t expected
to find
such fashion
in a foreign outpost
especially
beneath
the stone rubble
of war zone
