SLAUGHTERHOUSE
(12/10/16)

I step
around
them

over
them

some
must be
moved

whatever
it takes
to get
to what
I need

there are
bodies
simply everywhere

clogging
the works

dead
to the world

dead
to me

I don't
know
what killed them

jobs

relationships

social media

disease

but the life
has left
their eyes

they are not
my concern
as long
as they haven't
died
in my way

groceries
purchased
I can finally
get out
of here

the smell
is unbearable
