packs of vultures
picking scraps from the culture
keeping the parts they like

a slow breath drawn at a pivotal junture,
to mend the wounds with some yarn and a suture.
truth stands tall as a beacon for futures.

The ‘What do you want to do?’ Conundrum,
that’s what friends are for.

We are like vultures
that never leave the ground
Circling around blocks
looking for the next prey

Political vultures are picking our minds clean of all original thought.

Death lurked here. I walked slowly. It was day, but it seemed so dark. The silence was loud. The smell was unbearable. I looked forward, walking as fast as I could. I needed to get out of here. Something wasn’t right about this place. This place I called home.
