Something I wrote back in 2016.

when he screams at the camera
and he ignores the rules
and he clenches his fists
and he ruffles his brows
and his veins they swell
and his eyes, they fill
with drops:
hydrogen
hydrogen
oxygen
chemicals mixed with rage.
when he screams for too long
and his voice goes ignored,
he clenches his fists
and ruffles his brows
and his veins, they swell
but his eyes, they shut
and his screams, they fade.
silenced to death.

Unapologetically yours,
Fiza
