Collateral Effects


A pitched battle.

One side seeking

to destroy the other.

Neither see

the spiral

of their collateral effects.

The Earth destroyed,

lives lost,

but what’s more,

reality becomes frayed.

Tears in the veil,

never truly repaired.

Just rends and scars

in our cosmic memory.

Ego only sees itself.


it sees only enemies.

In its fervor

to destroy it challengers

it kills everything it loves.
