vultures
sybarite

death broker
 1
peddles cremation jewellry
 2
talons scritch-scratching
 3
for purchase on the stiff cold
 4
of my Mother's body
 5
 
 
understated blue suit
 6
and conservative tie
 7
ill-conceal a neb
 8
shaped to feed
 9
on grief
 10
 
 
and all of you
 11
clawing at my Mother's belongings
 12
seeking to line your filthy nests
 13
eyes a-glitter as they light upon
 14
her shiny things
 15
 
 
fuck you all
 16
my Mother is dead and I am drowning
 17
in the stench
 18
of rotting lilies
