The Weakened (prequel)

with watered-down words
on equivocal whiteboards
it’s a wicked world you’re told
and you should live today
for you’ll die tomorrow

so you burn the black gold
weekend away down the gorge
and by sunrise the following day
you’ll still be alive
lagging behind
going through the same cycle
a perpetual funeral
