infelicitous

whispering behind the screams
heard 
      but never 
                countenanced

talking head shots, spilling lies
                        where
                 people
slumber thinking

bleeding
         cabaret
stiletto
         mockery of thieve's plenary

One thought to “infelicitous”

  1. I don’t think one is supposed to ask a poet what some verse means or to whom it alludes, but dictator’d parts of Africa come to mind.
