Whitewashed backdrop
the proclamation of
purity, white of bone
an unussal feature
if one take note;
hollowed, hallowed
The Remains
Of skull might seem yet not
complete it be, for
'tis lacking parts might seem.
What manner of being it be?
What creature might it have been?
Hollowed of thought?
Hollowed of emotion?
Hollowed of substance?
How then did it see,
eye sockets, nose to breathe
there no evidence be.
Gaping jaws, what horror
didst thy endure?
Didst thy see?
The Remains
But of head there be
what of the body?
What horror befell thee?
Hollowed, harrowed,
robbed of thy humanity.
