shredded

interlocking
rows of teeth
fed reams of paper
hardened steel rollers
chews and spits
a basket of shredded
financial confetti
but no more matter
the design and care
it is paoer that will
eventually destroy
the paper shredder
much the same way as
life is the number one
leading cause of death
the things we are designed
to successfully pull off
are the ones that
kill us incrementally
be it love, work, or
the simple act of existing
entropy is the only
guaranteed prize
for a life lived
good or evil
chaos ot order
all that waits
at the end of the trip
is a corpse where
a person once was
