Beach Funeral

Sea creature corpses, on the beach

Washed from waves, buried in sand

Bloated flesh with blues and purples

Splotches and boils as big as plates

Striped, in scars and gashes; bloody

Stains that trailed as crust– dried up

Stream beds that sourced from their

Eyes and deltad into the gritted earth

Left the chilling appearance of man’s

Glasgow smiles; violent impressions

Plastered, on alien faces, frozen and

Locked for as long as they remained

In limbo– for as long as they had left

Remaining on earth– as if that, it had

All been planned– as if this was their

Funeral– on the beach, decomposing.
