Head without Pillow (4:00 PM)

Head without Pillow (Ecclesiastes 4:1-8)
~ by D², @d2poetry

an aching solitude exists in
both
power and tears

within the last breath a
community hears

blessed community
our final escape
from parasitic silos
lingering while they ingest

die-off bathes unborn cells
with toxic overwhelm

even the unconscious
fight for relevance
sitting down to eat
the vanquished with heartbeats

the irony…

The Victor
The Self-Centered
and The Fool
alike
chew on their own meat

filling their bellies
vainly attempting
to nourish and
sustaining
decimated
carcasses
