Poetry - "Sutures"

Sutures
by Jennifer Patino



Humanity has become a
collective vivisection

The bass-boom heart
vibrations stir blood-
flow in the ears of the
terrified

No one is safe when the
species spoils the living space

Too stuffy is the house
with boarded windows
No cracks for light--
I lack ability to fight
it

The sound barrier is too heavy
on the eyelids
The screen in the window
My screen in limbo

Decide/Delete/
Like/React

Humanity is in sutures
Lack of tact

Attack/Impact
