Dust crumbles from within sallow frames

They bleed minerals

Feeding the pigs bellow

Forgotten in never empty stomachs

Swelling acid

Crushing a feather, flightless bird

Cringe and cower in fluttering words

It breaks a smile

Rotting between closed lips

Crack and break

Starve without the courage to open the gate

Grow thinner and turn to leather

Hard boil the insides to ropes of hungry eyes
