Diminished


Something’s not right
something important
not your expired insurance
or the burner left on
or the dog home alone
with his paws in the fan,

Not the crocodile
bellying down the bank
or a tear in the fascia
of your quadriceps
but as if the slightest amperage
had been sapped
from your life’s current.

Something is wrong.
You donít know
when or how you were diminished
but your eyes no longer fit
the bronze cavities
of the colossus you were.
