2020-08-22 – Mortal Failing

i toss brick feet up and
tuck my tongue

for a few blinks and
drawn out breaths a day,

overbite so pronounced
the jaw won’t sit
quite right,

restless maybe,
need to shake
or twist

my stiff body so life’s
bloods surging
won’t curdle

or rust to the
insides of


a mortal failing
to give up

the human refusing
to keep up
