Light slips off the eyes and drops.

A breath slips twixt the lips and pops.

Last thoughts run through… but flops.

 

The horizon and sun kiss to be done.

 

Flesh shrinks in like grapes to raisins,

And crack and split perpetual occasion.

Skin peels off and eyes are glazing.

 

Color devolves and leaves begin fall.

 

Worms spill out the mouth like vomit.

Riving pits into the face like comets.

Writhing, mating, eating on it.

 

Snow peels away like a scab of yesterday.

 

And whether there are sweet, sweet dreams.

Or nightmares, fear, cold sweats, and screams.

Or silence-

 

All the while the skull still smiles.
