Not Machine

Metal on metal
screams for attention
as the pace picks up
and no one notices
the cracks, small,
stressing from the fatigue,
the battering
that won't relent
to keep the machine
on schedule, tight - too tight
with needs to anoint, 
a patch repair on the fly,
searching for the manual,
the how-to of self healing
to trouble shoot
this collection of parts
- body, soul, mind -
intricacies of movement,
before the ground rises up
to meet staggering knees
that are willing to run,
just reduce the load,
shut it down,
bring it in,
for it's built to go
and go it will to flames
without care.
