To the World

please stop beheading

 

I stopped

Watching the news

When they killed you

a second time

 

Don’t watch 

said the talking heads

your head fell

 

one less head

two less eyes

three more dead

 

you became your work

you were on the 6:30 news

you were the front page story

when I woke up

your stories were buried

along with your head
