RIGOR MORTIS

 

[Dedicated to the victims of super typhoon Yolanda, Nov. 8, 2013]

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eyeballs glassy

Staring blankly

To the vast void

Of monotony-

Limbs in grotesque

Shapes and sizes

Unmovable

And persistent

As Gibraltar-

Now slowly thawing

To the basking sunlight

As it waved its last

And final goodbye

And as the first throng

Of flies swarmed…
