Scheduled Programming

By Hazel Smith, TIWP Student

you dance in the harsh light

machiavellian souls
decay that only spreads
coating daylight
in ash

now darkness falls
cuffs that once held heroes,
confining the wrists of horrors

the ones that line my history book
the tragic atrocities that trickle in
to fill the previously blank pages

programming blares on,
switched off, by me
