the bells toll indifferently

lifeless
dull
a series of
mannequins
with flesh
bone splinters
jutting out
anthropomorphic
cacti with
fibrous sinew
chlorophyll fingers
maniacally winding
pocket watches
against the
sullen tide of
church bells
ticktockticktock
whispering pardons
in parabolical
disenchantment
prickly passive
pale pink purveyors
in frantic repose
ticktockticktock
scabrous lips
pulled tight
scarred slits
over toothy
indentions
dull
lifeless
marble eyed
monstrosities
a series of
mannequins
with flesh
being hauled
to the mines
carrying
soot stained
canaries
into a panic of
poisoned gases
perfumed corpses
in gilded cages
bone splintered
needle pierced
penitence in
isotopic
indifference
the cacti march
clumsily to a
denatured demise
in time with
the church bells
swollen echoes
