80. dirty raincoat

by mould_jesus - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

hung to dry or drip
blood, the collected
effort of twenty thousand dead
floating down the street past
fast food and last call
looters. bullet in the head of
an entire city, fired forth
from the belly of a beast.

fire on top, water on bottom.
buildings burn down while the
sour smell of bodies traces its way
to aerial photographers.

ammonia eats away at already
rotted flesh as one lonely
wanderer wades through all
the blasphemy searching for shelter
or a new home.
