One Word: system

defense fortress implosion
secluded lonely world dissolved
multi-solitude-system failure
outed, walnut shell cracked
kernel picked out, exquisite
lost to (WOW!) strong arms and
(Mmmmmm!) stubble roughened cheek and chin
heart falling through steam
billowed up through
gritty subway ventilation grates
homeless men and their cardboard
warmed by unfaltering adoration
