EXFOLIATE WITH FINGERNAILS
(8/4/18)

go ahead

dig in

rip away
the skin
that has become
desensitized
to the insanity
of society

the part
of us
that buys
what they're
selling

rip away
the flesh
that they recognize
as a good
solid
citizen

a repeatable
resource
of revenue

get down
to where
a bit of blood
can be
seen

begin
to heal
to the nature
that begat
us

the nature
that binds
us

we are
more
than what
they allow us
to buy

see human
in the mirror
instead
of consumer

feel sun
upon the
face

remember
what is real
