An ear-thirsty tick— infects the hips

An ear-thirsty tick— infects the hips
The once, proudly latched
now ails us with sick tips and blips

It weeps when we laugh
and laughs when we eat— 
Mobile epitaphs haunt the floors
and homes where we sleep

Brittle peopleweight paperweight—
beckons as a wiseman’s black star—
Saves— but costs more than fate

Pavlov run, Pavlov go—
Flag us for fevers— nudge us for plans—
sail us for science than anchor the soul

We run and we go— 
whether you whisper or wail—
we wed an ill echo— of inner avail
