death and resurrection By Patricia Marie Budd - September 2, 2019

death and resurrection’s connection
violent, perfidious exploitation

loving censured-my heart’s avenger
crying love justice empathy together

like a drunken woman ravaged by sex
a cluster of men surrounding her flex

ripping, digging deep inside tender flesh
disseminating feminine essence

death becomes her as the soldier’s chore
slaughtered in the battle of life’s war

Commander lucre-xenophobic rule
emerging from rhetorical abuse

unabashed malfeasance manipulates
transfiguration-unrefined grace decay
