Silvered skin, gleaming red under fluorescent,

spilling still into porcelain stains, pooling in coagulate.

Sickly, slick, sticking substance, splayed,

corner

to

corner.

Saline mingling rivulets, descending, descry intention,

weep without retention, trailing mucky streams.

Rose complexion uninhabited, departs. A blended mask,

red, ivory, deformed. Persephone blooms.

Peripheral darkness, looming, encroaching empty orbs,

thrashed to throes. Fibrous spittle fleck adorned reflection

captures silent cadences, now emptied momentarily.
