Brain Infection

Dripping tar slid from glassy blues
Sliding down unwashed cheeks
Radiating infection as it goes
Filling the cracks and crevices
That life had hollowed out
With salt-flavored goo
Covering over
Pull away quick
Don’t touch or you’ll get it too
Eyes down
Lungs dry
Deep wracking breaths
Shudder and sigh
Corrupting pollution
Black, sticky mess
Doesn’t wash off
This is the infection
That is me
