corrosive by vagabond ©


the moment before
we kissed
the tension built
news cameras and satellites
looking down on us
using our anti-capitalist sentiment
to sell a pill for erectile dysfunction

we needed to reaffirm our righteousness so
we kissed
through the masks covering our face
but this example like the countless others
will be lost on the authoritarians
and those that serve them

the line of riot cops disappeared when
we kissed
just as the tear gas began to clear
and the wind changed direction
and the burning police van
shined like an example of the consequences

what they don’t realize is that
this kiss
in this place at this time
is more corrosive to the death culture management
than a thousand riots
a miscalculation that will cost them everything
