It’s unclear how you got here
Until you remove your bullshit colored glasses
And turn around
To see the legions of frowns
Hunkered down, wary of your next move

This is not dystopian fiction

Defer the inevitable reckoning
Of what it means to live in a world with other

People, people and all this ammunition
Boasting that your violence has precision
And the most necessary intentions
By the rules of your invention
