These Casual Horrors

 

we are by horror surrounded

darkness thrives within our light

the deadlies and their kin

no longer caring to hide

but lurching among us

in broad light of day

unashamed their depravity

stands upon our lives

 

and

what astounds me

is not that these horrors happen

for

“the heart of man is deceitful above all things”

 

no

what astounds me

is that we take these horrors so casually

they

walk careless into our daily conversations

 

as if theyre

normal

 

or something
