Eating pavement

eating pavement is not
what i call a complete meal
not unless it comes with a side of
blame, shame, and injustice
along with a peppering of
pain killers and muscle relaxers

this world is sadistic
even for this asshole and cynic
it’s a grayscale vacuum
sucking our systematic souls
powering the vampiric network
of death driven labeling
and pro-life advertising

the doom fad is to kill the king
to become the king
to be killed the king

for the ending
i leave you with this
the life we’ve bought
is the life we owe
not the one we sought
to mend, bend, and grow
