Kite Dreams

footprints-768682_640

Time is a predator
Tick-tock is how it’s spent
Until the thread is visibly shorter
Than the mind ever imagined

A carcass awaits every dream
Where vultures assemble to feed on the cynicism
Of what was left behind

And only the memory of youth is
Left fossilizing

As bone.
