Fragments

Fragmented people
lapsing into silences
splitting into fissures
of bareness,
loneliness seeping in
like a filler
into gaping culverts.

Disoriented
like entwined threads,
disintegrating
like tattered strands
putrefying
into remorseless desires
when decay settles.

Prudent harvesting
swift sifting
could alone avert
the felony of the sword
poised to strike the lethal blow.
