void our tombs dig our burrows
we hide two hundreds of bone
sour vacant stones
that inhabit a corpse for a lifetime at most
all the pieces that formed a whole human or fowl
our envelop disolved and cut to the bone
if we wanted to give back to the soil what our bodies have stolen
it should leak through the holes
of our hundreds of bleaching bones and reach final goal
but our matter’s cursed and even cut to the bone we’ll all poison the moles
cut to the bone
we’ll all poison the moles
