Heart Rust

The oldest man drinks quick sips
Of the Ebony’s night poison
hoping that the meager amounts
wouldn’t accumulate in the soft organ tissue.

But the tricky gray emotions 
Would trickle up from the bog’s soil
Building in the heartier parts
of the man’s main pump--causing rust.

    This piece leaves a lot to the reader's individual imagination. I can interpret it one way while someone else may comprehend it differently.
