He was trying to read my mind,
but it was clouded and all out of context.
I was eating blood mushrooms,
as I lay in a green, fleshy field.
I watched a woman taking death by the hand;
She had starlight in her eyes and hair.
I could see her sleeping skull
resting behind a wall of tears.
Something almost human had screamed.
A clumsy body approached in the darkness.
Every step was like dried spinal cords snapping.
The naked, dismembered body of a young girl;
She was searching blindly for her head and hands.
The mysteries were quietly dying in the cemetery.
I traced her name in the gravestone
until my fingers bled.
I tasted her in the blood that I wiped onto my lips.
So many memories have been forgotten,
Like bones beneath the oceanís skin.
The murdered girl was digging her nubs into the cold soil;
Where a muffled scream was vibrating the Earth.
Everybody wants to be identified.
