Red [Day 22]

Listen to nothing festering into everything:
it’s the sound of people falling in love-
does that sound like anything to you?
do you believe in love-

Don’t call out to strangers, never!
there’s things none of us would recall
if there was no danger- do you believe
in love? do you think we’re in danger-

There’s little flowers exploding into our skin
no, quite literally, dear, we’re being bombed!
don’t forget to feed the dog, the fish, the cattle-
do you think this is a threat? do you move on-

Broken doors, shredded letters: no we’re not
going to burn the house down, little girl!
does that sound like banging the furniture?
do you think we’ll ever fall out-

The war of the times is upon us, we’re missing
body parts to parts of our lungs breathing lies,
does the sound of death speak louder?
is this what they’re calling red, and dark, and harsher-

Listen to nothing festering into everything:
it’s the sound of people falling in love-
does that sound like anything to you?
do you believe in love?
