Geriatric Nightmares

Geriatric nightmares and stricken by days

Danced beat

– skipped

Skewered and slipped from sleeves

Wired up by revered machine

Tubes puncturing, enveloping skin

Yellowed from absent iron

She rocked, routine

Resting, but woken

Sunken in a ravine

Gorgeous once

Wanderlust

But tubes pump until nothing is left

Frantic, falling into fever

The lever is edging

Leave me
