Lesson in the Morgue

Lesson in the Morgue

Revolt is unpersisting.
since from this flaccid frame
blood flowed to water.
objective—on a stone,
emotionless; recumbent;
dankly drear ....

Dawn shivers in the culm
of after-starlight. He remains
inert, unmotivated, still
his soul a vast oblivion.
"Shall we go?"
O cataclysm!
A pointing finger this. And we?
we shall forget.

Maurice James
