struck dumb his mouth agape
as she sashays across his view
her purple dress exposing his whole heart
and just a hint of what he'll miss
as she sashays away
leaving his heart

ides of March and so begins
the quickening
this construct we've come to adore
will falter and collapse
'til just beyond the fool's day door
when services do lapse
the carcass then to be consumed
by none other than it's mother
and we abandoned to a sea
of lesser capability
will struggle after this eviction
to maintain a sad addiction
to a lopsided interdiction
lacking smell and taste and touch
beyond the haptic key vibration
and with the whimper of
that pathetic fingertip buzz
what once a mighty roar was
will naught but echo be
