After death, the body core temperature falls

In the soil among oak and hickory
a body lies shamelessly spread before me
to allow flies into folds of the skin
once considered private and forbidden

distorted by the gifts of nature
multiplying bacteria creates
pressure within the carcass
and forces out organic sludge

the state of black putrefaction
The bloated body collapse

gasses form in the body cavities
the sphincter responds in one final release
maggots feed on what belongs to the grave
repulsive digestion of swollen remains
insects consumes the remaining moist
in this stripped and twisted corpse

This contorted human form
in a lifeless condition
expells the monumental whiff of rot
into the warm midsummer nights air
to draw the attention of carrion birds
Are these tragic remains
posthumous eroticism?

And at the still midnight hour, she will shine
I kiss her forehead with soft flames lighter than air
to be wrapped around her divine dreams
Her limbs dance in forced phantom contortions
and her spiritual mouth, rectum and vagina bleed serpents of light
with the fragrance of angels
it feeds my fear of contamination

the state of black putrefaction
The bloated body collapse
the state of black putrefaction
The bloated body collapse
