Crumbling is not an instant’s Act

Crumbling is not an instant’s Act
A fundamental pause
Dilapidation’s processes
Are organized Decays.

‘Tis first a Cobweb on the Soul
A Cuticle of Dust
A Borer in the Axis
An Elemental Rust

Ruin is formal Devil’s work
Consecutive and slow
Fail in an instant, no man did
Slipping is Crash’s law.
