“Retrospective Wisdom”

Don’t you know

you are more than flesh and bone;

that your heart is more

than just rhythm and blood?

Don’t your smoking guns burn your skin

tucked neatly at you side,

or do they only make you walk away faster?

What will you be

when your flesh hangs anciently to your bones;

when  your heart is hollow

of all those names you conveniently forgot;

of all the people

that were meant to fill it…….?
