the air sits heavy on my bones today
as the world sucks in its breath,

receding with a smirking wink.
It leaves behind


the ultimate thief
slinking quietly backstage
to cue the bone show breakdown

pulling tendons and strings
until all thats left of me
are frayed edges & unspooling doubts

No sledgehammer tragedies here
No blazes of glory
No booms or bullets or
ominous music cues

No warning at all

just you
nothing more
than a series of stutter stop breaths

but somehow
I do not accept.
