Teenagers on vacation are as reckless
as a kamikaze nightmare
since they know somewhere inside them
what they’re really going back to
when it’s over.
Pink lemonade gone red
out on the glass table
under the blue and green umbrella
someone put there
so that we could look beyond
the furthest fences in the cattle fields.
The striped cat is like a guardian
of the land and likes to sit under
the oak tree when its raining
just to watch how all the water
washes over all the places
it has killed for.
This pecking order is a furnace
forging anarchists and sometimes even
worse than that with just a handful
of fresh mud thrown in their faces
on a repeat for forever.
