civilians

civilians we call ourselves

as if this war

we send others to fight

is civil.

little scraps of flesh

stick to every surface

hands, face, sweater

they’re in the door lock

as you turn the key.

the civilized

have no eyes to see

action and motive

to wake up and take note.

eyes flew away

when they built that walmart.

one dollar swim shoes are

more important.
