Battery

Ok, so there have been better weeks. heh. :)
Aubs

Battery

To be mixed with eggs and whipped on high
Wet ingredients mingle with the dry
Flour particles floating toward the ceiling
A blended-up, dropped-by-the-spoonful feeling

To be stopped mid-air by a swinging bat
Kinetic and potential energy interact
Springing from a second's possession
A violent, straight-down-the-center compression

To be reamed in the ring by repeated hits
Transferred momentum from a fighter's fists
Successive blows shatter the face
A slumped-shouldered, broken-and-bloody disgrace

To be slowly sapped of chemical supplies
Discarded and drained from electrical highs
Vital for functions every minute of the day
A taken-for-granted and then thrown away
