plastic fingers

8 Jul

when a volcano erupts
and a vocal tribe explains the action
as a direct response to the rape and pillage of land,
people get seduced and hop on the bandwagon.

meanwhile off in the quiet,
the invisible people see a shimmer
from birds splashing in an oil bath lake
and notice a new kind of courage,
to get out.

*broken bats baseball on old ways today’s way
A-ok and even better

    I see the vocal tribe like a radio commentary.
