As LIFE begins to wane

On countrysides animal scurry along, leaving footprints

In the carbonized material of this planet.

Channel surfing & empty ink pens,

Pepsi & wadded up candy wrappers

All over the house remannts of LIFE

Breathing all over us.


LIFE moves over us like a rapist in some dark room 

We somehow forgot about

In the brightest hours;

It leaves footprints

In the carbonized material of this skin.


Passing through streets burning with loneliness & boredom;

Sometime I often wonder about the perplexity

All of it stains upon our memory.


Midst preposterous pink & turquoise blue color

Our LIFE begins to petal,

slightly bruised.
