Humans bruise. They take their lumps.
Their wells are
and their pumps decorative.
Every trend is short-
inked and boogered like shirtsleeves.
We are born to lose,
loose, two-timers, and timebombs.
Had I chosen this,
would have surely gone for something worse.
I am a blue-tailed fly
zagging through a field of turds.
