Homo Homini LupusMan is wolf, when sheep readPrepared texts on telepromptersPrepare meals for TV consumptionWhile wolves howl at the wind of timeThe chimes of crimeThe hives of beards and knivesDancing to West Side Story remakesIn broad daylight.Man is wolf in the dark hours of the soulHidden promise of a bullet launched in an eye socketFor Dali to melt into the framework of trains run on timeFor the winter solstice, dancing with hoofsLicking the blood of liesThe cream of charred lungsThe smoky kiss of internal organsBoiling in the alphabet of the sun.Man is wolf since no man has ever knownA minute of peace since the battle cry of uncivil societyHad its first cotillion that led to the forceful subjugationOf buxom prisoners in redShown a shiny cross in goldAnd asked to spend their nights with ghosts.Man is wolf and wolf is man.No dog need mourn the switch upOr annotate the scorn.Bedros Afeyan1-30-2020Pleasanton, CA
