Difficult to watch if one sees an
unabridged disassembly; calm       
fades into stone – carved with
no liberation from a once lived
life, no escaping that evocative
connotation, irony in pillar and
post dispossessed of creature
burdens once literally blessed

To be rephrased unpretentious
in memories, a past no-longer
packed in cardboard boxes but
recycled and freed through the
persuasion it was valid enough
to warrant real tears shed
