Listen, before you cut your eyes out

Poor child, In your eyes tears that cry out in anguish For stars torn apart, The March of armies tearing you from your mother’s breast The sea green divide Of thousands of aeons of loneliness and despair on the new planet’s surface Poor child, You’ve probably seen me in your age and wondered if modifying […]
