Bones

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

receding with a smirking wink.
It leaves behind

Disease

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.
