Hide Away


tongue now flaccid
once rigid and full of
conceited, confident dogma
that rolled down greased
loose lips considered sturdy,
now dribble forgotten spit
dried up bigotry on shriveled lips,
no more to ooze
on your chest
an emblem.

huge smiles,
now embarrassed grins that bite
heavily on busted molars.

a travesty in propulsion
halted.
exposed notions
now in slow motion
out of town registration.

chest sunken in
shoulders pulled up
the heavy intolerance
drags in your parched pit
with no tap to slake it.

hide away in small dusty towns
where you can quietly,
in anorexic numbers 
jiggle loose jowls,
ten at the most,
to mourn the loss
of an obscenely obese era.
