This World Is Traumatized.

This world is traumatized.
And our species is
reenacting trauma
Violence. Dukkha. Maya. The Fall.
This is the screaming blood of Abel.
This is the chaos washed by the great deluge.
This is Jesus murdered
by the collective psychosis,
the collective darkness,
of the human heart
drunk on religion and politics.
This is the monstrous mirror
called the news cycle.
We are the monster in the mirror.
Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
