WASTED

Looking old, without the silvering hair,
Brittle bones and battered pores;
Waking moments shackled to the grave
Living remnant of a wasted breath.

Years passed, crawling with you
Thoughts tethered to the soot of time—
Soaring high where the flying kites were
Feet freezing cold on rusty treadmill.
