Poem: Temporary

Among the hungry monsters

Are a few with eyes that wander

They pursue with merciless diligence

All they see


They whisper when we’re dreaming

And when we’re awake they’re screaming

For anything that was, is,

And ever could be


They eat the earth around us

They blind us and confound us

Then they turn around

And eat our soul


Before this we can stop them

And remember things forgotten

And remove the poison from our system

To regain control
