Screaming jets

Armed only
with a paper license to inflict words
of desperation like yellow streaks of sun
burned across closed eyelids,
the man doesn’t glance away
from his path of righteous doom,
not for wayward rodent greetings
or for screaming jets of bio waste
or for candy lingering on a bitter tongue
and not for her fading suit of skin.
