the taste of time (20161109)

cutting into a steak
overwhelms me

we are all
sacks of shambling meat
delicious char blackened umami
a result of rapid oxidation

it happens to us at a snail’s pace
every day
as the clock ticks down
so slow you can’t smell
the melting fat
or hear the sizzle

all of nature waits to sink its
teeth into us
and have that taste of time
running down its throat
