s_a_v_t_o_ train

insatiable appetite

eats everything

kidneys

heartbeats

dreams

devours without end

flies under the radar

of patriotic flags

revolutionary anthems

licks mouths dry

where lipstick once gave beauty reign

leaves rictus grins

on exhausted faces

runs fat hands over harrowed ribs

embraces

for the briefest of moments

the ravaged remains

of every unworthy victim

fallen

to numb hunger

 

 

narrows its gaze

spreads wide its fingers

 

moves on

***
