SUICIDE

a country
committing suicide
but what
kind of
suicide is this
(for which they have
a new Ministry, new
Agency

new people with
mops and buckets
to come
clean up)?

I do not see
lemmings hurling themselves
into the ocean
striking out for
some shore we do
not see, yet there
in their imaginations

or alone, with saki,
steel and
every
step observed in
that ancient ceremony
since they
cannot deal
with their failure and
hence the shame

or
less
seppuku, less
lemming kamikaze

just the pills delivered
by shaking hand

pills
hoarded for this special moment
the only certainty left
in the
chaos of
this broken, inhuman,
collapsing world
