Pay Me No Eulogy

A green stalk
sprouts from the ground
It climbs up
and bends to the right
As it crawls and tightens
around my ankle
I feel a spasm in my brain
my heart jumps but modestly
and electric shivers
that my pulse skipped
the stream diminished
to flow again in beats to succeed
I am hollow
when she would have had shooting feelings
None a feather
heavily I am planted
because the poison stings not
my skin is as well plaster on the wall
my body a ghost
my mind its spirit
wander like the dangles
of a witch's torn coat
I will dilute,
