your skin is striped

black and white

the colors mixed in

would be a solid gray

indifference and apathetic

as you always are

the feet that you pad on

sound like hooves

as you swim over the lineoleum

as i stare at the black and white walls

as i see your skin

and i realize how dead

how your corpse is desecrated

bloating and with your glass like

ribs sticking out

your black and white eyes

no longer gaze back at me
