HUMAN INTEREST
(3/12/15)


pain

disease

dysfunction

decrepitude

claim
those things
that will not
be taken
from you

wrap
them about
you
like a coat

a furry layer
of thinning
acceptance

so that
our fellow
creatures
of this planet
will see us
as one
of their own

a weakened
version
of themselves

waiting
for us
to falter

in order
to dine
upon
our dilapidated
flesh
