Decay

He needs a dusting of fungicide
every now and then
A high-functioning depressive
like Emily’s Homer
becoming one with the sheets
The inner linings of his organs
all in revolt
turning and groaning
trying to suckle at the capillaries
get their last share
of whatever molecules are still floating in the plasma
If only‘s in every dusty corner
As cryogenics slow the unreliable, pulsing muscle in his chest
into a lasting nondegenerative stupor
in a glass case
(What did they do with Lenin when the wall fell?)
Dozing Snow White/Sleeping Beauty fresh
on and on
