Occupy Poetry

Cerebral Contusion

BY Saira Viola

You catch the A train lipstick on leopard shoes

Mascara magic lines your eyes

And you flip strut easy to your desk

You read about Ri Ri Nigella and Miley

Bullets bore black skies with Drones

And Barbie instagrams pop up in your inbox

It's a Niqab of veiled ignorance which festers in the basement of your mind

Down three shots- giggle box time

Circling ravens and the crescent of Hate

Wing you to excess

Your world yellow green and red .

La vérité
