like i am beholden
to your lips
like this could end
any other way than
a hullbreached sinking ship.
as if this isn't
iceberg meets titanic destructive
as if the torture
and the mystery of the forbidden
as if this is bleached
and dyed with neon colours
and the flagman waves his arms
telling passers by
there's nothing to see
as though a flock of
foreshadowing geese flew south
the minute you laid eyes
as though a breath-extinguished flame
an exsanguinated resolve
and a see no evil, speak none, hear none
merged into one
to make a behemoth.

Funny, they say so too.
But sometimes it’s hard to tell, who is really who.
A cop shoots a brother down.
A gangster shoots cops in retaliation.
Cops terrorize our neighborhoods
We burn them to the ground.
They shove me to the ground, their guns at my head.
One takes wallet
The other gives me a pair of metal bracelets.
One wrong move, and both will fire.
So when we play cops and robbers,
How will we know the difference?
Whose side should we take
when both sides have made such huge mistakes.
Death is a slave’s freedom,
A martyrs unwilling gift.
Squandered on those who uses the dead’s name as a rally cry to,
Free more slaves,
Make more martyrs
Who give the incentive to start a war.
The is no one group to be blamed
But the individuals are never punished
No murder is black and white
But both the black and the white hide the killers in their closets.
We’re in an age where we are the ones who cry
“Give us Barabbas!”
