Lifeless and alien
Bodies a poisonous red
They murder their creators
Furtive daggers in willing hands

They pursue the living
They trample the dead

Unleashed by the acts
Of a thousand pallid functionaries
Who stand perplexed

Palms upraised
A chorus of doubt
Behind gilded masks

A thousand blind machinists
Each responsible for a piece
Of this effort that leads
To this machine of slaughter

Yet my hands are among
Those of the guilty

This is my hand on the knife
Furtive daggers in the night

How could I have known


from Adzes​/​Putrescine Split, released September 23, 2022
