Devil To Say
(6/7/2022)


to sit

alone
in silence

baking

boiling

percolating

cooking
in a certain
degenerative
uniqueness

that will
result
eventually
in some expulsion
of revulsion

irritation

frustration

of soul-
consuming
hate

is quite
the self-imposed
burden

why anyone
would endure
such a masochistic
existence
is well
beyond
the majority
of understanding

but such
a life
is easy
actually

for those
seeing only
a society
of lies

for those
inundated
internally
with alternative
realities

oh
we smile
in public

mimicking
the masks
of others
in order
to diffuse
any suspicion

but your
lives
mean nothing
to us

we wait

we plan

and we
do smile

for real

to ourselves

in isolation

knowing
what is
to come
