Exhausted

Like the noxious fumes from a tailpipe
Soft and brown as a banana that has gone ripe
Piled high as a butcher's bin of beef tripe

Exhausted

As in James Brown's sole (not soul)
As in tenth frame at the Melville Bowl
As in where lies the remote control?

Exhausted

The tipping point where the lung inhales
The easterly breeze puffing out the sails
The veterans who are tough as nails
A sense of humor like Christian Bale's

Exhausted

The river before the rain
The tooth after the pain
The friend who went insane
The life inside the brain

Exhausted

The sun as it rises
The hemline as it rises
The toast as it rises
The buttery world with no surprises

Exhausted.
