A menagerie of decay, of rabid rot, bone and bite and core.

There is no need for venality here, sneaking cigarettes in

our sleep. Muttering moonstruck beasts, incurable corpses

continue to wallow and weep. We clutch the stale screams

in our half-plundered lungs, and the walls peel and reel

with the frenzy we reek. The mirrors reflect and reject,

reverse, disconnect. Good-bye, not good-bye, our hands

slip from cobwebs to grace. Revolution will come in a

convulsion of violets, and it will not spare the deceased.
