“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski

If you peel my skin back in an autopsy
Of my control,
You'll find me rotting in many places,
Especially the ones most put
Together and
On the outside—this atrophy
Of my composure
Is struggling to morph into a complex
Much greater than my original dissent
From sanity–in sanity I became known
To greater inconsistencies
Than illusion ever taught me;
And for a while I let them dissect my
In the hopes they could tell me why I feel
The way I feel;
For if I knew, then my skin would be like diamonds:
Too hard to give under the pressure
Of the scalpel knife
And the insistence
Of the priest blessing my passing into the
Afterlife of my
I said goodbye to control,
And in doing so,
I was resurrected in a freedom not unlike
Except there's no funeral for those
Like me.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.
