the color. the putrid spark. as life stumbles. as loud as it is lost. the rope. eager games play the odds. the burn. the grip. toothsome predators. pale in the wane of the sun.

the world ends quietly. like we were never there at all. the snake hisses. victory more venomous than she had imagined.

the gamble. the scrape of skin. the bone too near. a repetition of ends. more ghost than man.

Her snow white listens. As the poison apple is prepared. More than ready for the end. The hunt always ends in flesh. the bones dances inside it. a prism of words belonging only to strangers. a suicide of knowing. Determined to forget.
