enemy

the enemy rants bang & bang & bang pounding the dumpster outside/inside the glass shards don't cut the feet walking is treacherous windows scattered smashed in and out . . . come on do something . . . mobilize
---------------------------------------------------------------

it was a fenced in temple then a poor exposed ruin now an abandoned dream suffering the onslaught of inner city time under the white halogen glare of the motel parking lot security light . . . you don't care

---------------------------------------------------------------

perpetual manray silver prints on pollack drips please the imagination feeding what you fool fist to the head. . . sure that'll work

---------------------------------------------------------------

it was quiet for so long relatively speaking the eyesight blurred the leg numbed the restoration became a daunting task you knew it had to start on the exterior you waited for the crisis to build focus underneath magnifying . . . why the glass? the windows? the eyes?

---------------------------------------------------------------

. . . enemy of the people . . . enemy of the people . . . the people . . . enemy . . .
