Unthinkingly –
I bucked slack and
sniffed the hardened fat
caked on the seal bone,
of which the sand-clotted texture
had nearly retched me last night,
though by morning my saliva glands
did prickle into slickness,
pooled under-tongue
for it was a dense and ratty meat,
not unlike what he had wrenched from mine.
I clean it with a knife,
Unsensually –

Broken seven seals
You will never know what’s real
Spurning the surreal

I am not afraid of the dark.
May be because there might be a supernatural power sealing me by its protection.

I woke up a second

I was i am i'll be

Doesn't seem to break me

I'm the only name

Today I stand beside you to honor those we love.
The ones who made it home, the ones still fighting, and the ones called to guide us from above.
Today, when they sing the national anthem, don't be surprised if you see me cry. It represents everything that makes me proud to be semper fi.
Today, it doesn't matter where you come from.
If you're here, you're American at the core.
Today, we celebrate everything we're fighting for.
Today, we'll visit our parents, daughters and sons
And tell them their war is over
"You can finally rest in peace. It's okay. Lay down your guns."
Whether you're a soldier, seal or marine, thank you for shielding us from all the things you see that should never be seen.
