My will is strong,
But my body is failing
My lips speak wrong,
And the symptoms are flailing
My teeth chatter,
And my body shakes
Boney banter
And mindless flakes,
Changing ever eyes
And painted nails,
Security’s deprived
Of hammer and nails,
Dialed up thoughts,
Of a chipping pay phone,
Viscosity rots,
In its shelling tone,
Swollen balloon,
Of a head held side
Hairs run too
A cell confined,
Vinegar saliva
Printed on necks,
Clouds revive a
Beak that pecks
Twizzlered intestines
Of a body gone defective,
Rules pressed in,
Of a hope resurrected.
