lament

as i sit
on the mountaintop
singing my bitter
voiceless lament

watching carrions
tearing your flesh
agonizing
fluttering flesh

i became deaf
to screams that i hear
i became numb
to the pain that i feel

burning flesh
is sooting the clouds
– boiling thunder
within

i will rip
this pregnant sky
to flood this
blood soaked land
with waters

i became deaf
to screams that i hear
i became numb
to the pain that i feel

blood and tears
fertilize the soil
earth gives
the new birth

  • as it always does
