"Welcome to my faceless rage"

A Poem by Zack Burton

Poem #23. Uploaded Friday November 19, 8:27 PM. From "Poetry Collection 1."

Welcome to my faceless rage
Newborn terror, newborn age
Milky whites of seeing eyes
Open mouth in dim surprise
Little angels falling down
Burning hands from underground
Rotting nostrils sucking in
Stinking fingers grasping skin
God is hidden in this land
My face is missing, so is man
Man is missing all the points
Hammers breaking all the joints
Slow machine, prepare to fall
Faster man, I hear him call
Brain aflame with faceless rage
Newborn terror, newborn age

Yeah - I like the beat - needs the slam of a rubbish bin lid keeping time in the background.
