System Fail

By M. Jay Mansfield

All systems fail…
we’re heading in…
crash course
flaming out

wreckage scattered
sheets stained
needles pierce the skin
Last ditch effort

pumping me full
somebody else’s life
half alive
suffering dead

I refuse to
I will not
revving the engines
one more burst

Flying free
from the wreckage
The last flight
His terms
