I am the raven
or better yet--
the lurking vulture
feasting on decay
sipping likewarm acid
I do no deteriorate the way you do.
I do not decompose.
I impose
and compose
deep, dark melodies
of bones cracking
skin flaking
tongues brittle and breaking
sounds becoming silence
it is what I create,
and all it touches,
that destroys--
