I saw a video today

of eyes
that look into the darkness where promises
percolate into strife
and in the background I heard
a sound not dissimilar 
to a baby's gurgle - except
behind the mindless intent
there is not a search for language
it is the abandonment of words -
a disregard for connection,
a wanton destruction for the sake
of constructed revenge  -

and the headless bodies they collect
and the blood they drink like milk from the breast
and the fear they seek to instill

is reminiscent of the horde of locust ferocious
as it feasts upon its own green infancy
towards oblivion

or the rabbit that breeds itself into destruction
and leaves behind wretched soil blown
into despair.
