Emptiness has a way of spreading

like yellow forest slime mould

seeking more white mould

to slaughter and eat


Inexcorious and inexuberant

it fills your lungs first and

then moves to other organs

kidneys, liver, pancreas, spleen, stomach


and heart. Skin and testes

come last as the colour shows

through, inwards outwards

in slow decay


Can’t get it up

fly the flag of quarantine

face to the mirror

cocaine chapped nostrils


swollen sinuses, yellow slime

of mucous wanting out

to spread again to another organism

of promised greed and effluence
