In all our sanctuaries we sit at risk

I See Everywhere the False



I see everywhere the false, the masked,

the sleek and hollow,

the bought and the creatured.


Their words twist the wind

tug at my mind

and steal from me

the hymns of my life

the sacred.


True words die

the moment

they pass between

these creatures’ teeth.


Humanity is on the run.

It has taken cover.

How can we survive

this empire of the creature

and the lie ?
