Revelation

i consumed the jabs

at my demeanor, because

i knew no other way

~

now others risk

self-worth to wash their hands

or take a piss?

~

it ends, humiliation in all forms,

or hell begins.

2 Haiku

*

Ocean heard through walls

The slow roll of TV sounds

An inner sadness.

*

Towels folded like

Sky is indiscernible

But we are nothing.

Cataclysm

branches
hang like braided hair

caught between my
fingers and

a cataclysm

so like

red veins

seeking respite in
a sanctuary city.
