Scorch

You are thorough in your destruction
there’s scorched earth in your wake
a perfect policy of brutality and waste
without care or pity or empathy
no tender-hearted thought
in your blue gaze
ruins of your carpet-bombing campaign
in plain sight only here
where you do not care to see
as if to remove from yourself
responsibility for your part in
this singular massacre
this wanton annihilation
orchestrated with such rare disdain
that I cannot comprehend
