collateral

 

tenderly aging alliterations

and other agnostic hypocrisies

i used to be a masterpiece

but the flourishing of sinews

has since ceased

my limbs languishing

and curves collapse

to bitter avalanches

every day in a residual

state of damage control

after all

we are our own collateral
