ROTTEN FRUIT

Ravaged and rotting

once sweet now angry and bitter

and bloody wounded

deceived by rain

the sun.

broken wishbone

pulled clean apart

by cowardice, betrayal.

wings spread,

cast thoughtlessly

to the desert floor.

Digging deep to absolute, deafened darkness.

vultures cry in victory

and i crawl pained in hollow

suckled by darkness

and my smoke and burning heart.

nothing smooth or shiny remains

just an aching, faithless

thblackened stain.
