Mortal

The sun has been sunk

shot through with the

bullet of impending night

its bloody red innards

spilling over the horizon

til darkness swallows it down

You’re still above the ground

but not for so long

dirt calling for your flesh

like a filthy harbinger

its throat brimming

with earth and decay
