This Corpse Eats The Stars With Bloody Feet
Half-digested in the belly
of a thousand fruitflies, a corpse electric
in the rinds of reality
moves like a tree in the earth
and the flames all strangers with
perturbing pale as patterns
our corpse peels
living things like fruit
poaches thoughts endangered,
builds a prequel ark
among grinning bones
whispering viciously .
Animate are all others, elaborate entities
from the raining in their bones,
they connect, conjoin to form
a mass of murder
unending as species.
And when on nights when time is far away
and a skull is a bowl of screams
this corpse eats the stars with bloody feet.
