Unidentified Person

I spot the body a few meters away

the body is flaccid, soft and horizontal

The body is heavy, it is soiled in the very places I haven’t looked in the mirror since years

The body is in mid-twenties, it is young but feels old

I spot traces of ink on the finger tips and traces of tears near the apex of its thighs

I don’t know what came from where

The mouth is bleeding, the tongue ravaged with bites, curiously,

all from within

I peer at the mouth under the lens and spot the last fragments of broken letters vanishing.

The body has been touched, fondled, kissed, caressed, bitten, aroused, entered, groped, grabbed, pushed, pulled and held

The body jerks and twitches

The body heaves and lunges and seizes

And then ceases
