Black Denizen

Scorched earth blot
remains of an uncoupled creature
pulled from the patchwork left to rot

Nothing but the sinew and the bone
off the back porch of a brain
where the weeds started to grow

Twisted child of stars and red-black pits
casualty of an ungovernable civil war
wormed eye holes and insubordinate atoms

Overturned epitaph making science a mockery
what ungodly vex
all signs correlate with sorcery

Unwitnessed agonized crawl
second first breath to second demise
what impact this existence if any at all?

Black denizen decomposing into vitamins
corrosion evoking emotion seeping into mind’s dirt
undiagnosed urgency of the threat of lifelessness
