Old Spice

dying rich old man
gets one final haircut, then
cuts off all his heirs


Without a partner,
the deaf man dances even
when the music stops


Words of interest
often fail to find purchase
when bankrupt minds close


Spent sun dies and sinks
Ocean swallows and forgets —
I’m so damned mortal!
