Aura of Suburban Indifference

Posted to Action Poetry

The horrible aura of suburban indifference floats heavy in the air outside
I can feel the heady fumes setting up a fickle fascist regime in my mind
As malcontent housewives have nightmares of not knowing their places
And morally inert men next to them lie awake to measure their cocks
I walk the streets and try to ignore the impoverished screams of their souls
A gut wrenching wail from the infinite immobile lips of what may have been
Moving wraithlike amongst waxed debt prominently displayed in front of each house
If you get up early enough you can see it pooled lifeless in the gutters
Before the sunlight cums full upon it and washes it into the drains
