Simonada: "HEATDEATH"

from Futuro Conjunto by Futuro Conjunto



a liquid promise
a cruel charade

a cutting falsehood
your crystal barricade

this age

a guilty conscience
a crooked smile

an old deception
your suffocating style

your style

still, I see you
clear as day
you’re a heat mirage
a heat mirage

an empty gesture
a silver stage

a paper tiger
your profiteering ways

your ways

a grim obsession
a foreign fear

eternal summer
the flag you’ve planted here


still, I see you
clear as day
you’re a heat mirage
a heat mirage
