Delicacy.

Life is a delicacy,
But never eat it delicately.
Savour it deliberately,
Liberate you, liberate me.
Flavour infiltrates our space,
Indicates our sinful traits,
Filters through a vaporous trace,
Brings us back, defibrillates.
Negate the negativity,
The berating fibres of our being,
Which flog and flay us
Under burred and barbed whips.
Flagellating sensations
Which never once miss,
Yet never find congruence in the mist
When their arcs mark their target
with their influence.
Navigate these nuisances
With a gait and stance of nuance.
Life never treats us delicately,
But savour all its delicacy.
