hallmarks of humanity

Hallmarks of Humanity

Hammered shut
hammered down
slam-dunked
& eviscerated
flash-flood
exonerated
griddle cakes
of delusion.

 

Dreary nuns
of chastisement
witch hunts &
cross burnings
the great
surge of
stupidity
the coarse
face of
coarse certainty.

 

Tattered dreams
in a
cosmic wind
burnt to
crisps
in a
sun flare.

 

Nobility is
not the
hallmark of
humanity
nor is
beauty.
They’re the
hallmarks of
wayward angels
who were
never meant
to be
born here.

 

I refuse
to put
my name
to the
document.
