Have you seen chaos so sickening
that you dreamed of going numb?
Even though there would be no hope of joy
the numb calm would outweigh any loss.
there are enough sharp corners to war and murder
that they could be grabbed with a scalpel
of creative thought and be thrown out
for the obsolete waste of time that they are.
but those other poisons
that have seeped so deeply into us
that they are brushed aside
until they hit a wall
and we must acknowledge them,
bits at a time.
the one’s that we choose to ignore
because the suffering is quiet
and the survivors strong
and lucky enough.
Do you wonder about them?
Or do you blame them for going numb?
Because, the number keeps growing.
