I AM GOING BLIND

I am going blind

with our irresolution

to protect ourselves

 

and our future selves.

In the quickening darkness,

everyone is taking aim.

I CAN’T PROTECT YOU

I can’t protect you,

lisp and stutter of my soul.

The world is slaking

 

our indifference

with a draft of moreover.

Pretty soon, we’ll have to speak.
