fandangoing with the wind

 
it took two days
to pack you into
her last breath
to pin you down
consume your lie
to find your truth
 
what you wasted
is a burnt-out-star
those lips
simply molecules
impersonating thought
 
her alibi
slipping off the seconds
the portal closing
its gaping jaw
your bellyful
of crackpot fantasies
swallowed up
with mourning's aftertaste
 
death-watch testimonies  
crawl from mouth
to fisted hands
losing control
over something
that no longer exists
for you
 
you
 
the cunt
she slipped away from
smiling
no longer giving you
oxygen

Stanza 2 and 3 are oldies, the rest is new.

More the death of something than someone.
