So many heinous smiles

so many heinous smiles
their fangs sparkling
their eyes piercing the flash
their drooling soaked in envy

so many vultures floating over the corpses
almost corpses…. keeping company
to the walking dead
their feathers fall on the emptied eyes
blind, exhausted, the body turns to prey
surrender is a bliss
death seems a kind release
the desert is a vast oasis

so many heinous smiles
at every corner
the desert awaits for us
the oceans die so slowly
imploding becomes an option

    My poetry would become all of the sudden serene if I would be hosted in such unit! Thank you, Louis Kasatkin!
