Astonishing Advocacy

An underling,
the basest of the base,
crawling through marshes made murky by madness.

Your eyes send arms,
trying to pull
me back. Blinded brain
inexplicably ignores eager embrace,
like a baby spitting out sustenance.

Show clemency toward
this ingrate,
unwitting serpent,
bleeding stone.

Drowning, undesigned
in self pity,
no air
no breath
no life.
