acceptable losses

can
the coroner
tell
the spot of
impact
that sent ripples
along
the supposedly solid
core
making
hairline cracks
that
raced along
the obsidian cage
painstakingly
crafted
to keep the
beasts
at bay?

or

will it be
chalked up
to just another case
of broken hearted
despair?

does it matter?

in the grand
scheme
of
scheming lies
does one set
of bereft
circumstances
lend creed
to the most base of
human
dismantlings?

do we just
scribble
the name and date
into the records
to be sealed
forgotten
in the dust bin
of regularly scheduled
programming?

the coroner just
moves
to the same
theme music
we all follow
the carrot
dangling
words
hanging
mysteriously
coalescing
into the average of
acceptable
losses.
