“Kilos of Truth”

 

 

 

 

KILOS OF TRUTH

 

Kilos of truth
a foot to the neck
poisonous serpentine yoke
others seeking
an out

Humming
present
continuous
behind garden under firewood
in concert with weather reports

Buzzing
mad bees
swarming
electricity
hissing

where’s it’s going?
buzz
hiss
boom –
just wait!
