Scales of skin peel off, falling
Down like sycamore seeds, twirling while they
Distraught wings spin, forming
Kaleidoscope patterns yet beauty is
Obscured, shrouded by a layer of denial;
Flaky would be an understatement.
A toothless smile digs deep into my
Flesh; leaves nothing but impotent scars of
One, Two, Three, Four…
Five Wheels? A Reliant Robin with stabilisers
Without the Fun;
Pathetic would be an understatement.
Dangled feet hang precariously,
Engulfed by shoes they test the
Recoiling like snapping guitar
Strings they flee for the nearest money
Tree, not to harvest their withering fruits but to shelter;
Uncommitted would be an understatement.
