The Perpetrator's Corpse

His skull
like the ivory of a shattered tusk 
the still-moist dull gleam of cream
lining the torn-apart flesh


Look inside the head
its void
the most inner part exposed

The white of the bone

Free from the marrow of the chaos 
the thoughts inside contained


The hollow warmth of its hue

You won't see
where the bullet burst 
through the top of his head 
like a boiled potato
lying in its skin
gashed across
and squeezed on all sides 

If you look at the white of the bone 

Closer, closer 

Just look at the white of the bone
