I'll Take it All

I'll take it all.

I want
your strip malls
your cheap beer
your dirty bars
your ugly hookers
your bad boys.

I want
your broken hypodermic needles
your shameless porn
your processed cheese
your fast food fat
your nuclear waste.

Bring me
vivisected rabbits,
a million tons of dead man-flesh,
rotting in No Man's Land
morning noon and night.

I'll take it.

I want
your dark streets
your angry mobs
your serial killers
your hidden paedophiles
your deserted ideals.

Torture me with soft lies
Spit out pleasantries
Like hearts on fire
And smile.

I can take that.

You don't have
enough litter
enough shit
enough disease
To make me gag.
Why do you retch?

There isn't
enough violence
enough sex
enough fear
To make me blink.
Why do you close your eyes?

In one drop of
my tears
my blood
my shit
There is
more here than gone
more now than then.

I'll take it all.

Now is not the time for fear.
Come for me,
Tooth and claw.

Time. Terror. Tears.

I'll take it. All.
