I can’t write anything tonight.
I keep trying, but my chest is burning up
with red hot anger
directed at about a million different fucked up things
in this fucked up world.
Patriarchy, oppression, violence, criminal corporations, broken governments.
On nights like tonight
when that hate starts to fill up my heart
with the acrid smoke
it feels like the only thing that would make me feel better
is to watch
civilization burn to the ground,
swallowed up by the same stuff
that’s blazing me up inside.
And the only thing that soothes me is to
stand outside with the cold wind
running through my hair,
and my bare feet quiet on the frozen ground,
with the insanity of it all.
Thank you for listening,
