Unrelenting

Slow, dull, monotonous, persistent
and unforgiving;
Every beat renews
the ever darkening constancy
of a reluctant pessimist.

An exercise in futility;
rusting arteries can only
blacken young blood,
with each new beat.
Slow;
Dull;
Unrelenting;

Never learning.

Mockingbirds do not return
to leafless branches
and play Muse
to the poets of eternal Fall.
