look like a candidate for a pair of wings

euphemism To look like one who is likely or about to die soon. I just saw my Uncle Michael. He's gotten so frail and sickly—he looks like a candidate for a pair of wings, if I'm honest. I'm sure I looked like a candidate for a pair of wings with how ill I was, but thankfully I've been feeling much better lately.
