Stupor: the brutalist beacon
that marks this never-ending era;
it is the ominous epitaph
that plagues our sunless sky;
superseding the stars.

Brains turned, garment torn;
decay has found us all
like a foul siege; its bitter aroma
favours no one --- so put an end
to the pointing of fingers ---
but, even so, its presence remains
not of ourselves, even though
flesh is all we have left.

What we once were is now just
an unintelligible call to arms
from a once jealous God
that once embodied us all.
But that was a long time ago.
Now we are looked down upon
by the so-called “enlightened ones” ---
as if we aren’t the ones
they’ll surely become.

Revolution: an elusive come of age
collapsing into fraudulent change.

An Occupy piece? Not sure, but it certainly feels like it heh. It feels like a slap in the face to all the kids who went out to Occupy thinking it was a revolution. Writing is the choicest as usual

If I was a rich man in 17th century Britain, I'd totally adopt Alec and make him my heir.

People say I tan easily, but that's just my Bronze showing through.

This isn't actually alluding to Occupy but that doesn't mean you can't interpret it as such. Thank you for reading

I really love how your pieces feel both deliberate and vague. Every word is important, but the meaning is obscured just enough to be left to interpretation. I always get something from your work.
