We violence

we violence poem

A poem of failure

We failed you – right?

Your expectations – oh, so great.

A safe harbour – a dream

After all, that violence, does it make any sense?

That circled violence

‘round and ‘round

We failed you – under the sea

there are no harbours, no dreams.

We wanted it, we raped it, we hated it,


We are the violence that failed your heart.
