Half Life

held the glass half-empty in half light
held his breath half-awake in the night
half believed all the half-assed denials
half believed in his own failing sight

bits and pieces of a half life

baby steps in a black hole of blue ink
they half the distance but never arrive
half a mind to reduce it to nothing
too far gone always beats half-alive

bits and pieces of a half life

full of life, up to here
choking down the doubt and fear
force fed back his every word
stretched to burst by the absurd

bits and pieces of a half life

sickly grin in a thousand places
cat junkie eyes always follow
burned a hole in a million faces
bury him where no flowers grow

sticky, stuck in some slippery substance
some Petri puck with a bum chromosome
one more god with a fear of high places
another fool who got lost halfway home

bits and pieces of a half life
