'Normality' or 'post-riot commute'

Packed in, suspicious but unsure:the smasher and sweepers; the igniters and dousers; the displacers and displaced, all confused about the week of unbounded greed and how the familiarity of commute dulls emotion from the memory of raging riotous streets.
Back to the amnesia 'normality' of bubbling oils waiting for another spark. Where the proletariate subconscious philosophy is that satisfaction is both a basic human right and completely unattainable and contentment in now is an abhorrent insult, and all ambition is filling the gaps in the mirror's foreground with empty plastic.

Find

One day I will find, my love,
the walls that throw my voice back at me in angry echoes, and I'll understand.

One day I will find, my love, those twisted bones that splinter as they bend in reaching for sustain and I'll feel nothing.

One day I will find, my love, the foresight that grasps the profound linguistics of sorrow before it incapacitates all movement and I'll smile as I write.

One day I will find, my love, the ability to access every shadowed corner, damp and destitute in bourgeois denial of the existence of thirst. I'll  breathe slowly, the warm smell of death and lying elixirs and I'll know truth.

One day I will find, my love, the courage to clear my throat
