Life B Knot

Life B knot to tether and aphixiate

Pain

Dismay

In touch

In sight

In listen

In poison’d tongues

 

Life B knot but wing’d death flightless;

Lamed;

Wounded;

To see but not kiss the openness of the skies above.

Life B knot but the maggots in fast fore the feast;

To gorge their innards ‘til it doth strain ‘gainst elastic skin

As in chagrin to humanity’s brittle.

 

Life B knot but the delight of an unseen torturer’s delight;

Letting the flesh warm for the slightest of second

Before the waves of crushing cold break the sturdiest of will

 

Life B knot but in e’er breathed lament

Loosened only in the wither

Of decay
