uprooted

uprooted-3
razor thread
wound choke
tight

writhe
and flinch
below the cinch

root infection
– swift extraction

grisly gap
now caves the mouth,

with poison
seeping out.

gasp

  • Crowd

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

panic cracks the
flickering screens

of a billion
bursting eyes

as an empire’s
rotting bounty

is swarmed by
swollen flies
