Pause-induced Metamorphosis

Engorged from consuming
the American Dream
My limbs smudge the floor

The paused world
forces a sofa refuge
A place for my identity to dissolve
and surround my soul

Covered by a blanket
threaded with molted stress
I feed on decomposing ingredients
of a prescribed life

The value of business is replaced
with a new found treasure:
solitude

Handsome wings grow
destined for meaningful adventures
once the world resumes
