“Death for You – Remarkably Supple” By Indiana Rich

the corpse is
Diplomatic, pickled
in a Walnut womb,
garnished with Pomegranate
petals.

eyes like a donut
glazed with
confection
the focus is a vacuum.
pallor of
affection

Now you smile,
rusty gums
and candy teeth
you’ve left a cavity
a wormhole

I am consumed
diving into your
straw hair and

your stale perfume
six feet under

muddy clouds and
rotten soil
nowhere to look
but up


Indiana Rich is eighteen years old, taking a gap year after graduating from Newark Academy in Livingston, New Jersey. Following sudden changes with her health and college path, Indiana has immersed herself in a creative atmosphere, avidly writing poetry, prose, and songs.
