I don't always wash my hands
after doing messy things
and I wake from sleep in a panic
when my stained limbs go numb.
I watch to see which of my branches
will turn yellow first,
now that I've stopped 
polishing away the refuse.
I can sense the shift slowly
in my addled mind
as I consume rusted substance
for it's momentary highs.
I am terrified to ever discover
that my indulgences
will render me more and more colourless,
until I can no longer feel much at all.

Now, now....there's nothing amiss to wear a tad of builds character, or should I say, shows.....not that you need much help in that dept.
