Into the Void







Into the void





Dust transmutes

Into salt and water

Merged from the deep

Where all sorrows come



And man tears down

Gradually into air

And water

And anything in-between



Inside grows a heart

With a toadstool

For walls and valves

And sand for blood



Outside sits a funeral

Like make-up

Slowly and irreversibly

Deeping into the void
