How quickly life can leave your body.

You’re skin becomes cold

and your intestines rot

from the inside out.

Your lips become blue

and your body pale.

You’re placed into a casket

just your size

and slipped underground.

You are buried

six feet under old dirt

and musty earthworms that swim

in and out of the air holes that

surround your decomposing body.
