spine.

Published September 11, 2012 by April Fox

you don’t
matter
to the people who
walk along your spine in
military-issue
combat boots
lined with the skin
of your brothers
bite the fucking curb
wear the flag
let it wrap around
your throat
and suffocate
your thoughts-

drink the water.

where is the remote?
behind the couch
with the bible and your stash of
porn
girl on girl
god hates fags
we’re all in hell.

out the window you are watching
nations fall
we are
killing
children
close the curtain
pick up the phone
make a call
to change the world
your vote
on american idol
could determine the fate
of your soul.

dark room, prison bars
you love THIS you eat
THIS you fear
THIS-
we will inject you
with the things we think
you need
we will inject you
make you numb
shhh…
it doesn’t matter to you
now.

breathe.
