EXACTLY

I am at my
wits’ end
desperate to
absolve myself
of species guilt
find the very
best place to
dump my
shame
somewhere most
apt where it
will not go
bio-hazard,
poisonous rancid

and so when
buttons are pressed, warheads fall
drift down to point of detonation
gently parachuted

I shall point to the sky like
the fool and madman (last
fool and madman)
that I am

proclaim my innocence, repudiate
kinship with the blast

then turn upon you
as I do now here

calling you out for complicity and blame
not having the time to explain it to you exactly.
