In Absentia

I applied indifference like a salve
numbing head, heart and ego too
the affected areas untreated for so long
vulnerable and exposed
unwilling to process love
too angry to endure another’s hate
I cannot comment
or resist injustice
accept only in apathy
the current reality
I am a part of it too
a place-marker for existence
it exploded inside of me once
and now recedes to a quiet hum
returning to its origin
what came before?
I no longer care.
