the world's tears

the world cries remnants

of cold, dead tears

eyeless people part lips

to taste dry dust on dry tongue

the cracked, bloodless muscles

of ten million misty lives

fogged up by ten thousand years

dust tastes of humanity’s slime

sticking to the drain pipes

clogging up the sewers

of Earth’s poisoned

inner machinery

once well-oiled, smooth

now clash and jam

and lament for repair

the world screams pain

in burning tears

frightened people gape open mouths

to taste fierce fire on punished ignorance
