contronym

a human contronym
bound to the highway
seeking firelight
to guide him home
bound in barbed wire
trapped motionless
in rusted dreamsplinters
a discombobulated
spirit moving too fast
slowly wasting away
from enforced fasting
a contradictory stain
ruining the canvas
yet with a glimmer of
something in his
amorphous sputtering
given to bipolar
opposition as he
redefines being the
opposite of desired
a blob of ambergris
once overly valued
now nothing more than
flotsam on the tide
dust to be dusted
an acrimonious apology
taking blame while
explaining it all away
a sentient mound of
dust waiting to be
dusted into the aether
a human contronym
with no value except
in intrinsic contradiction
