Resuscitate

Answers that we wished away
Pressurized by peers and petulance
Every which way outmaneuvered
Hung by hinges slowly eroding
All welcome in

Flipping through albums and fairy tales
Expectancy only brings misery
Leftover dinners freezing and fungal
Moments we tried to live again
Slip through stubby fingers

Abandoned signs litter the highway
Measured by underestimated distances
Gotta keep dreams in check
Growing out of ourselves
Strength feebly twitching

Questions that span the cosmos
Broken backs incur arrears
Keeping still while the dust settles
Practiced until a reflex
Death-defying
