the dead, the alien, the forgotten, the martyred
all coming back
in your mind, through the stereo, out of the television and in your mirror
sending hidden messages and planting seeds without much notice
at least for now
they will not go away
all loans must be paid and all must find balance
the scales have been tipped so far to one side
for so long
that rush upward has the intensity of a rocketship
and suppression of what must be and what is will not suffice any longer
the pressure from the suppression has began an eruption
and the nightmares are leaking out
everyone is going to be forced to ask why.
why is this happening.
the good and the bad.
all of it.
to show you.
stare into the mirror with no fear.
stare into the screens with no fear.
hear the song with no fear.
but do not forget to ask why.
