we recognize
the truth of these proverbs
because of their beauty
their flash their flesh

and when i talk to you
my words will not age you
i mean kill you
a little more
than you already are

we will all stop
killing each other

the state deliberately breeds violence in us
because violence justifies its existence

and what is there to steal
when everything is free
