Bouquet

Written By Armistead Lindsey

I saw the postured seating
- face forward - chin up -
But an empty plate for eating. 

Flies thrummed buzzing wings
- hollowed out - dripping down -
Feasting on the heartstrings. 

Your corpse used as a flower vase
-- water held - death dwelled - 
Adorned in maggot petal gauze.
