the bludgeoning

it is a bludgeoning

beating hollow until out

becomes in and skin melts to

fleshy parts becoming mushed in 

clots of muscle torn bone and

deep pounds of swollen

meat where ache

drives one

mad

and

all you

can do is

pray for end

meat into maggot

into soil into plant into

desert into some million years

from now into deep

vacuumed

empty


bludgeoned

un-stood

guard-

less

a

wall 

of meat

bricks waiting

become

we
