Red Wires

 a poem by Joshua Brown

Bloated carcass of a whale
Stench to the city
People gather round to gawk
Tales to home return

Under the cover of dark wander
DNC attack
Confusion in the city of power
RNC collapse

Firework explode in Lebanon town
King shit
Shock and awe the bride
Life changes

Keep the sheep from seeing
The horror
So bad the mods bleach eyes
Facebook dies

Red wire
Red wire
Threaded through the hall
Walk gingerly
Hands guided by the wall

Red wire
Red wire
The sunlight blazes fire
Faded ghost
Green flowering bush inspire

Wind chimes in the breeze
Red wires repurposed
