…of consumption creeps in, drips from the side of the moon that doesn’t sleep. A faucet with fangs cannot be turned off. From Alligator: by A. J. Huffman.
Syria today – tomorrow
That human nebulous experience among the rubble
As everyday as the football gossip or the markets rise and fall
Empires in their being rise and fall. Not even walls hold firm
The world is fighting its own bill of rights. In every tiny corner
Once, here was a great and glorious pulsating heathing metropolis.
The city will rise again from the blood permeated in the earth
