we age

we atrophy

we concede

toward
the end
we are nothing
but ramshackle
stick figures

cartoon balloons
of personality
oozing
from decrepit
caricatures

destined
to float away
one day
upon the
prevailing
winds

fading
from
sight

no longer
legible

merely memories
to be
misquoted

if mentioned
again
at all
