Writing Prompt #123 “NoEnd House Part 5″


Your carrion festers in me like incense.

If I were a whole person I might

Accommodate addition but these

Unwieldy fractions prohibit advance.

Must you test my hollows?

Ask questions when the answers

Are too terrible to mention?

I recede as a cheshire cat

Into the treble of

An unknown darkness.

Sleep circles my eyes,

An ungovernable soot

Sired by confession.

I am much too broken

To criticize you.

If common sense is enough

Then you will move on

Before I’ve the chance

To kill you.
