Black Friday

On this recursive day,
pull back the tattered curtain
on our darkest moments,
the black and deadened
aspects of our souls,
expose the violence, the greed,
the weakness and betrayal;
shadows that hide beneath
the rosiest of lives..
What tortured gaze
awaits us in the mirror;
what hope
have we to offer
when faced with all
that needs to die
and our own urge to kill
rather than see?
