Built For Error

If you've never had sand
so deeply between your teeth
that it grinds them serrated

If you've never had oil
so deeply in your skin
that it stains your hands
like so much black blood

If you've never had every hair singed away
by the heat of burning cordite crimes
count yourself lucky

I've seen what humans can do
I've seen
we're all built for error
maybe not much else.
