Terminal Man

Man in trouble, terminal...
Swallow the concrete pill, settle in.
A dark gift: death wrapped in a life
That embrace of limitations, very little longer.

Swallow the concrete pill, settle in.

Across the burning bridge of compromise,
Still longing beauty with a sad fragile strength.
Old Gods' giggling, closer to the ends of things
Placing last bets with a certain careless fear.

Between the observer and the observed
Life wrapped in a death: a dark gift.
A shadow separating desire from satisfaction
Man in trouble, terminal...
