Numbness

Sonorous Hiraeth

On the street in front of my house

On the street in front of my house Lays the bloodied corpse of a dead squirrel

On the street in front of my house Lays the bloodied corpse of a dead squirrel Flies buzzing around it’s body like a halo

On the street in front of my house Lays the bloodied corpse of a dead squirrel Flies buzzing around it’s body like a halo Rust red blood a checkered blanket

I am scared

I am scared But not because of the passing of a life

I am scared But not because of the passing of a life I am scared of how indifferent I felt

I am scared But not because of the passing of a life I am scared of how indifferent I felt When I first laid eyes on that carcass

My heart did not speed up

My heart did not speed up Nor did my hands become clammy

My heart did not speed up Nor did my hands become clammy I don’t seem to recall how long my eyes lingered

My heart did not speed up Nor did my hands become clammy I don’t seem to recall how long my eyes lingered One second? Two?

It makes no matter

It makes no matter My eyes did not widen in fear

It makes no matter My eyes did not widen in fear Nor my throat tighten in disgust

I don’t fear death and its stench

I don’t fear death and its stench I fear the numbness inside me

I don’t fear death and its stench I fear the numbness inside me Like a deadly disease
