This is Wilderness
Enoch Sun

If you don’t care for obscenity

Watch how you vote

 

Play catch with smoke grenades

  Pull out the pin

Stand a few feet apart

Laugh and dance

and do it again

 

A kind of whacked-out music

Like you don’t even have a body

 

I mean this is wilderness

It talks

It’s all fire

Purity of absolute moral indifference

Like you never heard quiet before

 

Do not indulge in abstraction or analysis

Make the stomach believe

The final definitive truth

 

Its absolute and uncompromising

allegiance to a obscenity and evil
