mass graves

i am tagged in this photo

i am alive         probably


earth is unturned

fresh open wound

bodies in the air

flying from the grave



i am tagged in this photo

my body is a contortionist      apparently

there are bodyguards watching

they are protecting us

we are flying away


some of us don’t know how to fly properly yet

feet first

head first

legs first

my head is bent into my chest

a string pulls at my heart towards the sky

the guards are smiling

and smoking

they are happy for us
