flaw(less)ed self portrait

a series of flaws
less human, more scab
a weeping wound
dripping pus over
an indifferent land
corrupted at
an atomic level
a mistake
mistaken for the missing
link from man
to beast of burdens
charged with static
clinging too tightly
shaken off
trash in the tepid
air of abandonment.

as ugly inside
as out
an inverted
elephant man
just a series of
calcium deficiencies
pitted like the
dead satellite
he personifies
shining a feeble
facsimile
of her brilliance.

a conglomerate
of paint drippings
in the rinse water
an open sewer
of insignificant
flaws
less than
human
just a walking scab
over a bleeding
heartglimmer
fading into the night.

if he was ever there
at all.
