Somewhere…something lost:

As apes of the apex species we evolved
to be perched like a bird atop a tree
in the name of mankind.

‘Man’ is still ‘man’
in a different form
of the kind that has forgotten to be ‘kind.’

Money for money
Money for blood
as a false paradigm of prestige, supremacy.
Respect for each other lost
even batons of hatred cost
to be passed.

Nothing more to culminate.
Human touch has become impalpable.

If power alone can bring it back
let my poetry bleed.
Let petrichor invoke kindness.
Let my verses rain.
