Reinvention Cycles

like a killing needle

through the nape

it feels each time

each time rediscovering

the animal from the flesh

down to the bones

learning what impulsive

twitches occur when

emotive needles tweak

cause and effect

from barbaric youth cum innocent unbound

transformed to

sophomoric teen cum myopic romantic

transformed to

corporate man cum pragmatic fool

transformed to

entreprenurial philanthropic

and celibate maniac

cumming in the mind

when it ends I will

both damn and praise

the Holder of life's

fixating fluids.

Very profound poem indeed, my sentiments exactly. I love reading poems about the environment, we as poets have to do our best to get this message out and you David have done your part. Don't stop, keep writing about it, excellent poem. --Melvina--
