18+ Language Violence

richard III

Warning: This work has been rated 18+ for language and violence.

I don't want to speak ill of the dead;
I want to stab their ass with a lance
while horses drag their blood-spattered corpse
across the bridge,
because it beats scattering petals
over their embalmed face
and hoping I cover the hate stuffed
in every wrinkle, the fire slipping out
out of their closed eyes.

I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart; I am, I am, I am.
