Cells alive with
pinpricks of darkness
that will cause death.

Spikes in treeline color
that flicker like the edge of a wave.

Speck-ridden breezes
messing with the facial recognition

Threads of begotten ooze
tying up the trip wires.
Liquid salt that scratches
the ripped perimeter.

Engines falling out of bodies
and connecting with rippled sand.

Violin cases shedding cobwebs
in a shadow's drift,
while the bulk of guarded things
rolls toward them with a gooey center.

Nails to tickle
the laser-made stigmata
as the blood becomes
a fading shield.
