the literal animosity of things

it gets wrong and the public
goes mad at the predicament

so wrong that every silence
demands to be heard
but the ears are nonchalant

it creeps on my skin like
electrical shots of anguish

the cruel facts of circumstances
are obvious and they tend to
extract my inner honesty

i’m more than a pain of
the chaos that is seen
