Past prime and never was I close
to the pictures and pipelines you formed.

Barrel-chested voice,
wrap around my dainty wrists and resonate.

All your hooks inside,
pull me along for your ride.
I'm your bleeding son.
I am your broken son, unaligned.

Drag me behind.
I cast a lure, never cleaned the guts.
I tried to follow, but couldn't match your stride.

The mountains you move crane necks
measured against the mounds I've shuffled around.
My target's in flux,
your shadow stands unwavering.

Birthright cologne and arsenals
couldn't keep you down, old man.
I'm under the weight of band-aids and aspirin
strapped to my breaking back.
I'll never walk far enough.
