I Know All About You

I Know All About You

written by: Sergio A. Ortiz

@Saore

 

I’ve walked
through your innards
your venomous fluids
and touched your
calloused hands

as a personal friend
to the man who
contributes
to all your campaigns
you’ve set forests on fire

blazing fires in hospitals
and supermarkets
unstoppable
pyres in cruise ships
and jets

may the heat
and the cold
in El Niño’s season
find you choking
to death unforgiven
