..spent my blood like money


and left me to linger

like a beat dog

pacing a length of chain


without seeing

I know what you've done


your purchase lies

smothered inside

a plastic shopping bag.

cycle of oppressionpowerlessness

Thanks, all..offline for a few days. To tell the truth, most times when I write I couldn't put what I'm thinking into more succinct terms. To see to know to sense is one thing--to verbalize and transfer to others is another.
