something must break
taut air stranglehold
on social unrest
noose drawing tighter
around my neck
i feel the fires
burning burning burning
the rage searing
and
i no longer see
a way out of this mess
short of
hellfire
and death

still, the flames stoked
on electric messiahs
aglow on every face

i only want the
simple things now

your hand
your love
your kiss
