Haunting

img_4040

She lurks in spaces
where shadows are spun,
the ghosts of things
yet to come,
a figment of your
wild imagination,
a lingering haunting
of your own creation
to show you exactly
who you’ve become,
and watch all
your pieces
slowly come undone

Inauguration Day

Stifled,
this air I breathe,
hope overshadowed by sadness
for humanity,
the press of cold ink,
signed, sealed, delivered
while he preaches
behind a smug grin
and dangerous promisings
of fear and loathing,
ill-contained,
his black magic showing,
poison in the air
as he teaches intolerance,
another brick in the wall
and divided we fall
