Into the Pit

5 3 1

Hooman #A looks at the children
like his heart is breaking, so I say,

"We can't; we need to keep going,"
then we move on from half-

lizardman, half-human orphans
to a hallway that leads deeper

into the warehouse's abominable,
spiral-stairwelled pit.
          We descend

and pretend there's something
we can do with the one vote

we've been given to survive on;
yet as we enter the heart of the

West Coast Rightwing Castle,
          in the America behind,

Kavanaugh was just placed
on the Supreme Court

to checkmate hoomanity
into Babylonialism.
