beautiful corpse~by Prince Ibekwe



beautiful corpse

No automatic alt text available.

she was wrapped in costly linen of Egypt
perfumed with alabaster of kings
gold paraded the supple contours of her neckline
but she couldn’t touch it
.laid in immaculate quilt of the palace
pillow were made from the feathers of a dove
her eyes were closed to the queenly pleasures of the world
she couldn’t rock the earth with her high heel shoe anymore
for her legs were stiff and powerless
her lips and eyelashes were painted for the last time
those hair that gulped most her income
were shaved off with rusty scissors
burnt like nothing
the mortician washed her luscious skin
tossing it here and there
the emotions and ecstasies were gone
as the wind casted upon the sea
as flames watered down
her shine will never burn again

Ibekwe ®
September 2018.
