                    LESS FIT TO BE


                    1
                    these disappointments
                    border on betrayal,
                    this race has pummeled me
                    without respite,
                    without remorse
                    through the years,
                    unending demands
                    in unrelenting grind
                    2
                    we can not find
                    a mode of closure,
                    all these states
                    gape open, bleeding;
                    we seek to heal,
                    they seek to slay,
                    and in the mid-range
                    so many scars form
                    3
                    we know better,
                    or so we should,
                    to drop our guard,
                    to reach outside,
                    to try to touch
                    that other world
                    which waits with blades
                    and vile intents
                    4
                    marked, damaged,
                    broken down,
                    we are knocked from orbit
                    by unhealthy stars
                    left to hurtle
                    through this void,
                    less whole, less stable,
                    less fit to be
                    5
                    beset by gravities
                    beyond this sphere,
                    our form is crushed
                    and dragged below;
                    who sees horizons
                    made of dark,
                    who can scry
                    the point of obliteration?
