#prayforparis


how to withstand human life
significant persistent intolerable
reality and an idiom
answer for the question
why why is there celebration of
one eighteen thirty sixty one hundred twenty
one hundred fifty eight and why
do we care about these deaths but not about others
several thousand crossing the mediterranean
five point four million in the congo
three hundred villages in sudan
camera lenses on the gunpowder smell
outside of a soccer stadium
in ones and zeros we are told
to send our gods to paris
and quickly ignore that
we glorify ethical murder
we forget
the only religious conquest that kills
is the one to call a gun holy
and we too are responsible for the blood
our justifications have transubstantiated
into wine
