Beautiful Violence

I.
So we wait
In the 10 by 10,
Along the fields of free verse and film noir-
I lie next to my feelings.
5 gms cooked and cocked
Inside a virgin hypodermic
And Time rests on silent cat paws.

II.
Beautiful violence is better than mandatory minimum.
And yet,
Our forfeit in crystalline freedom is challenged
By Andrei Arsenevich and Strugatsky brothers:
“Because weakness is a great thing and strength is nothing”.
Red carpet. White Noise. Silver laurel. Green heat.
Memories of our future selves.
So we wait
Like a beautiful violence
To be unleashed on a movie screen.
