You must have
broken up with me on
a windy day
Because when my heart
shattered, all
the pieces blew away

A search party effort
could not locate
a trace
Oh, I still get about
just a frame and
a face

P1200144 (2017_05_17 23_14_42 UTC)

Everything squeaks
lavishly laden with
course brown rust
Still inciting laborious
effort, just without
any of the trust

Another tin man
Hesitant, with
a missing ticker
Fill it all up
with holes, and
the void gets thicker

I’ve scanned
the span
of the universe
All reports indicate:
nothing conclusive
nothing worse

P1200128 (2017_05_17 23_14_42 UTC)

Maybe it gets better
or perhaps just
Process and progress
comes in all shapes
and sizes

However it goes,
your judgments
please hold
I imagine I’ll keep
risking, right up
until I’m too old
