To generalise is to hope
badly. While netting entangles
particles that were never meant
to be born and die together.
Just try to smush the world into
a little ball. All that said, those
who wage war are forfeit. Those who
choose to send various metals
in trajectories that later
intersect with human flesh are
forfeit. Who treat people as meat
are forfeit. Who make the world grind
out sad goals that beggar belief
are forfeit. Those who laugh at it –
this jiggling of the human real
as it is smoothed violently
out are forfeit. They are fair game.
They are morlocks. We are eloi.
We must not allow ourselves rest.
They will eat us. We are surveilled
by red endocrinal systems
in our heads, necks, hearts and stomachs.
Like our wallets and our shoes were
peeled from the carcasses of cows
