Watered Down

Posted by in Dark, Unfiltered

Life has become watered down
To the point of distillation.
Don’t tell me this is a revelation,
Three-day vacations.
One-minute ruminations.
Lowered expectations.
Postponed renovations.
Unrealized innovations.
Someone add some lime,
And a little sugar too.
To the sky that lost its potency.
This old world.
This watered down zoo.
