Anatomy of a dream

Scream,
……….in silence,
for the watch towers
watch us
steal
………..their cancer.

It is by our own cruel hearts
they break us.

But their corpse-men plunder
only the bones of a dream
while their watch towers
watch us
scream
………….their thunder
that springs evil within us
and chokes what life remains.

It is by our own dead hands
they castrate us.
