human or something darker

heartland
grandstand,

those without chance in
environments sanitized
of prosperity.

clash of the
clans
manufactured,

hairline fractures too
embarrassing to
bare
are among us,

partisan lines
drawn in the
sands of love.

human or something darker,
incarcerated
but now
uncaged,
extending detentes to
the daylight,
but all the daylight
wants
is reckoning.

human or something darker,
remind us we came
out of the night ourselves,
were there when the
sun came up,
have come to fear dusk since,

its mosquitoes that rinse the
sky of dreams.
