Steadily it Goes

by meaghanmerrifield


the spiraling scarlet

deepens and darkens

with the aging day



steadily swooping decay

breathes faint

drip from molding mouths

in an echo

that unintentionally spills out

it blows through the blood

and rattles the ribs

settles tenderly underfoot

as the light creeps to a dim
