Blindful

this world
for all its beauty
delighting the senses
is a charnel house of
rage and fear and yearning
a dark cloud limned
with black as heavy as tar
human indignity
indifference and ignorance
fragile and stupid
wayward perpetual children
lost in storytellers’ lies
like millions of inward-turning
eyes full of blindness
