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
