metabolic

it slows its loping gait
for drawn out milliseconds
gasping for air
that once flowed like water
through the veins in your wrists
(like tunnels of termites
prior to collapse)
its passage inhibited by
days and by years
and by your own indecision
(or perhaps indifference).
break through
break up
break down and away
in a rending of fabric
that could not be sewn together again,
even if it should feel the desire for repair.
