22 January: A Belligerence

AI digital art representation of a winter's war.

A Belligerence

What is it, this
catch in my eye, that
black ozonal identity.
A fleeting shadow
reflecting on the sky.

What is it that offends
my eye, what electrical impulse,
what psychic uprooting.
What phantom illness
brewed this broken wisdom.

War is a suicide foundry,
a belligerence. A road to hell.

  1. I love that last stanza. Powerful. The language is as brutal as the topic. Spot on.

  3. The graphic alone was enough to break my heart; your words shattered it.
    A sad and lonely but exquisite piece, Misky. Well done πŸ’”

  4. And on and on and on…sadly.
    I’ve almost given up hope.
