Diminutive Dustbin

As it was in the beginning,

as it will always be.

In the end,

the only thing that changes

is me.


No matter the smell,

sound, feeling or grasp,

even if the night

were to never last.


After glows,


laughs, and flax,

the you,

that you know now,

will be gone…

as quick as that.


So hold tight

to those you love,

and chide

those you hate.

Because when we

close our eyes,

one last time,

all we are is

earthworm bait.
