Default The Cold, Cold Shutdown

The Cold, Cold Shutdown
by Timothy J. Ward

The cold, cold shutdown
the hellish shrieks of defeat
the chaotic rhythm of letting go
the lack of earth beneath your feet

The awkwardly broken plunge
the same hastily misfired words
the clear cleansing rains of hurt
the panic of screams deferred

The lengthy siesta from Everything
the birth of hallway lights anew
the return to former insinuations
the digging for an unburied few

The sheepish smirk of failure
the evergreen ivy of truth
the cold, cold shutdown is over
the body eventually must reboot
