Flows Like Oil

————–

Sludging over tender flesh….

Sinking into pores with

the power of cleansing darkness…

Flowing lava like over the bodies

of the living…

And the dying…

Seeing no difference

in the heartbeats…

or death rattles…

of the people in the audience…

But satisfied with the silent applause…

That always accompanies

a thankless job

Finished…

And done well…
