Slave to the Machine

cymachine

Wrench from me
These
Twisted machines.
Creating,
Crafting,
On open skin
Telling symbols
Of hidden sin.

Writhing
Wretched
Shameful things
Metal skin
Wire veined

Coercion and control of
Morals
Values
Soul.

Hardwiring
Until I am fit.
A product
Manipulated
Reduced
To a thing
Of profit.

About Z.

Poetic pipe and cigar enthusiast rifling through the haunted memories of a not so distant past while openly wrestling with faith and God. A rambling writer with the misguided notion that he has something to say. His only redeeming qualities are his wife and children.
