My world dies

by George Colkitto

I scream but no-one hears

notes stick in my throat

the world has changed



streams from me

a shell stripped naked


in the pull of desire

I sold my soul for riches

I can no longer stomach


rotted and dissolving

I disgorge

this inedible truth


live for money

die by money
