Notions of darkness and shadows, violence and love, hardboiled.

Howling tabloid leads
"More Butchered Bodies Found"
Many suspicions hinted at
Where people gather
Each new sky seems darker
Investigators clutch straws
While blood cascades
Strange silhouettes haunt
Sinister, mocking laughter
Floats along with wind
I’d be lying if I said
Pools of blood and fearful tears
Didn’t make me properly happy.

War drums pound,
Gladiators punch wives and tan child’s hide,
Zombies and first person shooters
Modern culture embraces mayhem,
Death and violence in home theaters
Our red masques dropped,
We must admit we cherish
Aggression, Hostility, Brutality
Exploration, Discovery, Artistry
Civilization dancing to the melody
Of Discord and Decay’s
Polyamorous Love Song
