Fortification

by lunc

Seeing me through close thick walls of shattered flint
exposes clearly the inescapable details of your fears.
You see your murder in my smile, the molestation of my collar;
their rape reflected in the worn brass buckle of my belt.

Drawing away, your view of the world rises higher
upon crisply castellated battlements where four-scores of
camera's focus on my boots; dusty from your shallow grave
and mottled with the cold brown drops of your innocent kin.

Fortified and armoured, away, above; beyond reproach.
Your face turned to all but me, the canon roars from your lips
your eyes burn my skin, your finger-point pieces my raw flesh
my death awaits; my quest erased with your soft hard-clicks.

Thus fated are those whom deign to ask if all your words
be truly those that mimic God, unquestionable; infallible,
praised and raised upon the pedestal of your favoured few.
Careful strangers! The good speak nought but "Good words.".
