Read Poetry: DEFAULT STATE, by Eduardo Escalante

“CHANGE your switch”, 
I’m stepping out of the sad 
resounding of  
adulterated answers. 
They hurt like bites. 
The lies cage of likely beaten 
I root through God’s absence. 
The hatreds bringing  
desolation to the innocent 
while somewhere so close maybe. 
You know sudden black. Don’t 
you remember? Take  
It out. Someone 
will remember 
time’s up.  
Bitter lies, pallidly interweaving. 
Outside my door, 
Back to your hell. 
And something 
Important I’ve always been trying to say 
Love. Not a foreign Kingdom or  
a cold headstone without an epitaph.
