Convoluted

eerie, jagged, jointed bone

high and low

fleshy, soft, permeable skin

punctured perfect with symmetric holes

 

broils onioned on and in

atop a sour, revolting body of sin

eerie, jagged, jointed ones

laying near or close or on

 

a stank, rotten, carcass aroma

nailed to the air around them

twisted skin;

grim retelling from arrogant men

 

the revolting make the rules

and the most revolting rules

those with a permanent stain

are locked in a box and cooked all the same

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
