I’ve Blinded a Girl


I’ve blinded a girl.
She was beautiful.
Her voice hoarse,
like that of an old woman.

I’ve killed children and mothers
without even blinking.
I’ve maimed and fatally wounded
without getting my hands dirty.

I am the silence that permits.
I am the despondent human mind.
I am history repeating.
I am ashamed.
