Purity > Brevity

injecting purity
turning into brevity

short life spans
quick to fold those hands

involuntary reason
shedding seasons
of our minds

shedding skin like candy
wrappers
in 1960s dreamscape

no one cares
to pick up litter

new age
is dying
in old
coffin
satin frayed

brief we are
in our search for
longevity

a footnote
in the face of
reason

we are a punctuation mark
in a death sentence

an ink smudge
on an imperfect canvas

nothing on nothing
with everything to prove

a drop of piss
in a wishing well

a copper tail;
things have never
been so swell
