broken dna

by Jason Alan

a twisted helix

a single strand

a double entendre

more than man

yet not quite a god

a hieroglyph from the future

a fistful of plague

we roam the earth

in search of nothing

nothing but fresh rage

nothing but death

nothing

but the multiplication

of suffering

driven

by twisted retribution

for deeds never done

sacrificial lambs

given

to a dying sun
