life’s elixir has
filtered through
greedily consumed
by a choking veil
what remains but
grim resin
residue of a dream 

such parched lips
temerarious tongue
lapping for sweet—
this cryptal throat
gulping so fast
mere anesthetic 

bitter too soon
upon last drop
nakedness revealed
blemish and pus
sudden realization
heaving resignation
only pain is real…
