Fortune Dares Poetry Series: “…”

it started peeling last night
the color today
faded
the edges
receding
it makes me sad to think it
the pain gone
healing
too soon
it’s healing
that’s the design
immortality –
he said a year
it died within the hour
you just can’t expect the truth to exist before it does
