over (#24 of 30)

energy is waning
life-force is draining
in spirals down pipes
that carry it away
to be filtered and cleansed
bottled up and sold
in sets of two
harbinger of things
better off buried
bones scattered and left to rot
on a train headed fast to nowhere
scenery of ruin flashing by
coming to the end of a saga that never was
jaws fused shut that have never sung
basic instructions
for leaving
nothing to pack
just say farewell
basic instructions
for leaving
light the pyre and ring the bell
