funeral song

The truth spreads

like a cancer;

moves through pulsing veins.

The truth is

she still lives in this unmade bed,

underneath the covers of isolation

the soft cotton over flushed skin

is a safety net.

and the truth is

both of her hands are covering her

puffy brown eyes

sinking into her own funeral song.
