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
