birdsong in the slaughterhouse

i listen
to the repeated refrain
of birdsong
seeking hidden meanings
to cut through
the quantum entanglement
in casual causal waves
afflicting my brain

the universe has
been calling but it
doesnt stick around
to leave a message
at the tonal dissonance
playing itself off
as tinnitus ringing
endlessly in the haze

so many voices
screaming to be unheard
herded and set off
down uneven hallways
drenched in birdsong
no decoder rings to clarify
a sense of sallow sorrow
as the airhammers hiss

trussed up tightly
hanging upside down
as rivers of blood pour
from jaggedly cut smiles
roaming the darkness
seeking the secret paths
connecting connective tissue
to universal angst
