Na/GloPoWriMo Day 13: In A New Day’s Saying

The Na/GloPoWriMo Day 13 challenge is to stand clichés on their heads and still make poetry out of the mess.  

Missing Mile - An Older Man Reads In the Terminal

In A New Day's Saying
by Michael Romani

Like an old man in the well conformed barrens
He was beginning to sort out his nonsense
Certain she couldn't look better than a proud harlot
Another year costs a piggy full of pennies
It was a single of duplicity caught up in a king's payout

The aurora borealis may the shade light as day
Life had become hard as a hardened crust
The best he had were just few hints of the death
On which he put his foot down hard as steel
He was as unhappy as a shellfish poisoned 

Life had become an unfrosted portion of a slice
Shorting circuiting the walk in his fading memory
His face having become like a flock of gulls in flight
Incessantly braying with the ease of ill intent
He had spent his life paying his last coins out
