Recalibrate – Potent and Worn

Potent and Worn
Peyton Marlow

fresh and new
come again, this war
i climbed
i surfaced
yet another encore

potent and worn
this body, this whore
it mends
it breaks
in this, we’re born

flay the skin
them, the saboteurs
they reek
they pale
and live no more

fade and decay
true pain, be schooled
he screams
he cries
packs be ruled

flesh of men
plague, we chew
who bows
who breaks
sisters, cleave through

silence of exits
release, to crave
that grace
that guile
curse the behave

in this we charge
and armed, we rise
each, we achieve
each, we conquer
daughters, we comprise
