  • A myriad of thoughts

    grass jutting
    head butting
    the dead
    lie in bastions
    abutting
    fortifications
    of the living
    whilst angels
    sing of blasphemy
    and the heavens cry bile
    mans race
    to contaminate
    space
    look closely
    the esoteric
    genetics
    unseen
    in human DNA
    confound
    look back
    behind
    up towards
    an odyssey
    the collapse of a star
    infinite and
    beyond reach
    obsolete
    the existence
    it once existed
    thought extinct
    human iris
    cloned galaxies
    clues to origins
    erstwhile taboo
    yet
    twelve thousand dollars
    shat
    upon a woman's chest
    in jest
    unjust while the
    innocent hunger
    pangs of the just
    the meek emanates truth
    and weeps degradation
    upon the masses
    bathing in it's delight
    soothing of it's ecstasy
    governments
    capitulate peace their
    pockets weighted of gold
    precipitates hate
    hate of me
    hate
    of you
    entangles the psych
    towards
    the precipice of war
    bodies
    upon
    bodies
    buried in forgotten pits
    womens wails
    screams of banshees
    at the sight of death
    revenge
    more death
    consoling
    conspiring
    conjuring
    retribution
    rebellion
    conflict
    bloodshed
    human suffering
    suffers conglomerate
    occupation
    destruction
    reconstruction
    reconstructed thought
    conformed
    into neo-society
    a fucking blight upon humanity

      I read this yesterday and thought it was great. I read it again today and liked it even better. I have only seen a few poems
      written with one word lines. Does it have a name? Yes, I am very green. I don't think I'll ever write that well, but it sure is nice to dream.

        An intellectual gem, Odonko-ba, stringing together so many images and ideas in a biting admonition of the horrors small-minded humans inflict on their brothers and sisters in a vast and threatened, yet unflinching Universe.

            Conjures up so many things expertly done with such few words. Amazing but I'm used to seeing amazing work from you.

            This pounds on me and leaves me a bit breathless...I, who yearn to live in hope. Harsh truths on display here.
