Summoning Leviathan


Anger seeps through brittle mantle
shifting mountains in its way
spilling ire upon the landscape
burning beauty and decay

brings forth this world where bees are killers
where young men shoot, and rob, and rape
where tender girls become their fathers
and mothers’ lips no longer pray

when rights are wrongs with altered meaning
minds transcribe eradication
in the deep the beast consenting
to rise and brood annihilation
