Pieces

Perfect
Pieces
Finished, complete,
Faultless body,
Smooth and rounded
Proportionate
Pristine and flush
Wonderful whole
A life
Full wonder

Finished, successful
Free of hassle
Commensurate
All in due time
Your heart's desire
Everything you could dream of
Utterly content
-
Blotchy, dark and white
Lines and fractures
Weathered and adorned
Scars of life
Piercings and tattoos
Stretched and scoured
with wilted dreams 
Desiccated skin and orphaned hair
Bald spots
A body full of life
-
A living illustration
Parts united
Ruins of an eroded youth
Icons of attrition
-
Collages of a distant past
Timepieces
Broken and restored
Damaged and obsolete
Exhausted and decrepit
Once a whole
-
Lives full of meaning
By trial and error
False hopes and ditto dreams
Endlessly remodelled and repaired
Restored and preserved 
Against the ravages of time
Meaningless life
-
Life and body
irreplaceable artworks
Perfect compositions
Layered meanings
Far away vistas and past tenses 
Shifting and false perspectives
Hidden and cherished dreams
Shade filled valleys
Illuminated moments
A perfect equilibrium
-
Beautiful pieces conserved
Stiff canvas put aside

Vulnerable scraps
And soft threads
 Converging
Towards a gratifying life
Full of grace
