Starved

Empathy has become emaciated

Starved on passing glances

Truth in marasmus

Calorie deficient policies

empty

problems swelling like fluid

social edema

pitting us against

anyone ill enough

we decay

life sloughs away

all that’s left are barely skinned bones

and eyes,

the only thing living
