poisoned

                        -poisoned-

Taking,
            Quick rapid 
                                 Unmonitored 
                                                            Pants..and a 
                                                                                  Heave….
Then 
        A smile and
                          A raise of clear glass
                                                    Of a fairly cold
                                                                     Quenching water…
The throat 
                 Cools, 
                        Another
                                   Heave…. 
                                          With a weird roll of the tongue
The taste
                Slicing, cutting, paralyzing the thirsty mouth,
The heart,
                Beats faster,  
                                     And beats faster
                                                             And faster than before…
The body
                quivers
                          And trembles
                                   And violently rolls
                                                     -submission-
                                                                    The body 
                                                                                  Falls
                                                                                         The glass
                                                                                                           Crushes…
Silence…
