A lifetime tunneling towards void stretched out for a cause

Now it's buried in a mountain of poison-dipped gauze

Embalmed in inky thought

Corpses buried on the banks of the Mississippi River

Now she too, deep in the cold mud, does shiver

The floods drag out the named

Sanctuary decayed


Memory synapses rotted out like broken cars

Her sense of composure is spiralling out to the stars

A gray and soaking weight

Cell wall division corroding under force of tears

Cacophony of voices engaging with her brittle ears

Her face gets no relief

Threnody for her teeth
