2017 Pad Chapbook Challenge November -- Writers Digest -- A Matter of Self-Destructruction / Poets United Poetry Pantry
A MATTER OF SELF-DESTRUCTION
perhaps it the lifestyle staying out late gettin’ crazy
eat too much drink the same foot in the mouth
or step into the traffic before the light turns green we forget
we are fragile creatures come with specific instructions for care and feeding
and once over the line it is hard to find the way back best to mind instructions
so much like holding the torch to a firecracker “up in smoke”
we are here one moment gone the next
but that is life isn’t it a matter of self-destruction
we can’t be too careful it is a destination we all reach in time
