Life | A Poem by El Sane Ken Silencer

Life, let the world
See what
You have
Turned me into…

Let the wind
Feel the breath
From the adrenaline
You have forced in me

Let the land
Feel the straight long walks
Of my legs,
You have gassed my strand…

Is not grievance
A bad mood,
Why’s happiness
Far from good

Life! Life! Life!
There is no breath
But living-death
In my hidden laugh…

Your stare is
Beyond mare peep
And your drip
More than pills.
