Written On Our Bones

RDP Wednesday – INSTINCT

 

 

Written on our bones-

the fear of snakes

the taste for revenge

tribal loyalty, greed and the urge to

make as many copies of ourselves as we can-

babies as they are called in polite circles.

 

Written on our bones

all of the times we have abandoned ourselves to our insticts

let them run wild like ill trained dogs

off the chain for the first time

 thirsty, starving, wanting more

racing blindly from one strange street to another

until we collapse

on a road, in a yard far away from home where our chain is waiting

for us to return
