collateral damage

pretty girls and pretty boys eat the
hardcore of war. radioactive
innocence melts their flesh away.
midnight manifestos of belligerent
gods paint their sunrise black. blood
thirsty scripture dribbles from their
deviant lips. swat team angels
feed at corporate gates. wolves
placate appetites of empty hearts.
ignore dead babies of war.
pretty girl’s severed hands folded in
prayer. pretty boys with butchered
legs pretending they are men.
hypocrisy of heaven make them
gullible for a forest of thundering
trees. they play in distraught weeping
willows, happy spirits are concealed
in cottonwoods clapping. they hide
the harmony of a song bird’s hymn.
they are wild horses wrapped in
shadows of shade. naked lovers
embraced in a simple breeze,
rolling in a softness of gentle
ferns. pretty girls and pretty boys
quench thirst from purified stones.
when clouds hang low they are raped
by a winter war. their juices frozen in
heavy arms. god blessed armies
guard their sleep, to a full moon they
weep. in a spirit of spring pretty girls
and pretty boys are born. suicide
bombs split their brains. trillion dollar
killing machines drain their veins.
i pity pretty girls and pretty boys.
