estate planning
unknown

some say you are hibernating.
 1
that you have yet to bloom.
 2
but my patience i have discovered
 3
is not infinite.
 4
and even the lies, illusions
 5
i tell myself have lost their luster.
 6
they say carbon under pressure
 7
becomes a diamond
 8
but you just sag.
 9
remain inert.
 10
ignoble gas.
 11
i should give you credit though
 12
you have yet to fuck up
 13
what was never in your control
 14
a passive recipient of quality genes
 15
that guarantee an efficient heart
 16
industrious kidneys, 20 20 vision
 17
and a hardy liver.
 18
so lover i'll keep you around
 19
until my patience outlives you
 20
or you make a fatal mistake
 21
for you're worth more
 22
dead than alive
 23
my beautiful organ donor.
