red lights flashing

the battery light
flashes
an angry red
as nonessential
systems shut down
motor control
shifts to clumsy
heartbeat to
fully erratic
thoughts go
circular as the
deathspiral winds
itself to a fiery
crescendo of silence
until the only
nonessential event
is my act of being
and try as i may
i cannot get it
to either stop
or seem to matter
