catastrophic, structural failure

Chesapeake, VA 01/20/15

hips become
a matching set
of pestle & mortar
to grind down
sleep
dream
mood

skyrocket discontent

my own personal pain
; i have no time
for your grief
—leave me alone

femoral heads
(most sensitive)
rasp gnarled
in diseased sockets

the clunk
and pop
of worn-out
(misaligned)
ball-joints
of a wobble
automobile

a beater
with nowhere to go
no way to go
no get-up-and-go

the emanating
life force
now shackled
; cinched down tight
like a corset
suffocating
an inactive core

give me
the full monty
behind the
white giant
jesus statue

my incision time
frankenstein
the monster
or the doctor?

please,
can i sit outside
the breakers?
once again
