"Don't compromise yourself, it's all you've got." - Janis Joplin


Old man with a cane
sugar addiction
swats the maggot
squirming
through the sliver
of rotting teeth.

Swallows
behind that
bulging neck
spits.

Decaying carcass
wriggles to freedom

or not.

Sluggish baby
brain of yours.

You have been living
dead.
