Vengeance is a Cannibal by Rachael Clyne

In the land of the toothless and blind
there is hunger for a clear sky
where nobody stumbles into walls
bangs their head on the incontrovertible
where only jackals feast on blasted bones
where earth, ashes and dust live side by side
and everyone wears a babel fish in their ear
learns to listen with a shy heart that ventures
from the forest like a doe at dawn
skips across deserts like a gazelle
covers the distance like a hawk, but one
that minds its own business. And the hyenas
who gather on the fringes to gloat
are kept at bay by a river of kindness.
