There will come a time
when your world will shrink
and all the grand delusions
that have since kept you afloat will
deflate and turn
your carbonated interior
into a lead weight
trapped in a hospital bed
where the
softness of a pillow
warmth of a blanket
breath of a fan
are the only loyal lovers remaining
that cannot betray you.
