abscession - this flesh rots hollow
the earth spoils it sickly black
transference and waiting rooms

and all that still grows, a wallow
the branch yearns for something else
transcendence and exit wounds

fed to the fates, the collow

we live on (to suicide)
just to bleed (the earth’s disease)
we fight on (millions perish)
we die

this life drains fast like sandfall between our hands
we touch in vain, our hearts won’t beat in time

this dream dies fast like cancer between our bones
we try in vain, our hearts won’t beat in time

this will rots last the old roots which gave first life
we kiss in vain, our hearts won’t beat this time

torrid throttle, cast thy breath on plumes of ash borne of our indolence
heedless cretin, sweat thy death in the ruins of our ancestral insolence

we’re all disease
destroy, destroyer
curse against the tides
writhe against the call

inhume the final act,
bring down the guillotines,
let it turn to dust
I turn over to rapture,
I leave myself to rust, dissolve, abandon

cicatrice by cicatrix,
it goes on.

(blight, a light)
(the earth in life through death)
(reborn! rejoice!)
