VICISSITUDES

Victory over vicissitudes
of time he sought, battle
between instincts/statutes
absence of meaning or will
fractional collapse, failing
strength, age deterioration
visceral pains, clogged veins
fallen trunk, beadle over run
new life mulch, fungus beds
bent his shoulders, longing
to return, into earth again.
