tumor

a tumor
on the base of the spine
golf ball sized
growing rapidly
into a mass
of cancerous dissent
to rally
the white blood cells
of desperate disgust

an insular
godlike growth
girth and heft
a microcosm
of sinful slices
along
the spinal column

hollow
bird bones
marred marrow
as misshapen clots
travel vascular byways
in search
of safe harbor
from
radioactive blasts

life
is a cancer
slowly
killing the best parts
of the globe
and calling it
progress
calling it
histories
calling it

a tumor
of plastic
floats
in the scenic heart
of the pacific ocean
ocean life
pacified
by toxic driftwood
