My Body

My body is a sinking ship
Giving up groans and shrieks in the ocean twilight
Metal fatigue cacophonous symphony
Before it sinks beneath the waves
Tears in two and comes to rest buried below the silt

My body is a rusted boiler
Still giving off some heat in the wintry night
Jetting steam and leaking water
From pipes that do not fit tight anymore
And maintenance can only prolong, not save

My body is a black screened computer
Giving out red warnings in a dim room
Smelling of burnt plastic and wiring
Searching its limited space for answers
As it shuts down for the night
