Flowers Bear Witness

babylonian mind
control on loop
every age
had their own
gods

the mathematics
of human behavior
all those ugly variables

no man’s land
franklin’s tower
went to the city
but the city
was burning

she’s a big boy
power and greed
all systems go

doomed

all that glitters
is not gold

streaming thunder
where it’s at
waiting around
to die

dreams and illusions
become real
here

bad seeds
in solitude
dead and lovely
alive and well

the only ones
that truly know
how to live
grow into flowers
from the ashes
