The Sink

by The Editor

Laying on the kitchen floor.

The ceiling gapes above,

The sky a giant maw beyond that…

Simply a swelling and sinking cavity,

with ribs displacing;

A heart,

Laying on a spine,

Laying on the floor.

Blood pooling behind the eyes;

saliva, in the throat.

This is a body,

This is a being,

this is bedlam
