By Mike O’Connell
right along with everything else
we are reservoirs of blood
occasionally leaking from
lead lined holes
loosing the elixir of life
the conductor of
trains of veins
releasing nutrients
until the pump fails
flows no more
gases inflating once vibrant
reservoirs with stagnant
pools unable to sustain
themselves let alone
life and love
becoming the elixir of death
finally fading leaving only
expired dreams
abbreviated struggles
and the outline of a soul
