secret machines



secret machines
fill the space
cracks leave
torn concrete
broken ground

gears turn
energy flows
words tumble down

cannot breathe
through the night
heavy with fear
and loathing

cannot see
through the darkness
empty rooms
and hallways

cannot be
more than who I am
to please you

secret machines
listen to
the turning

grinding the song
into dust.
