Infected (With Love)

The maggots
are at the heart
eating away
laying their larvae
where the rot makes
for a warm bed

and now
there are worms
in the blood
and the gut has been
turned out

when this happens
the skin
has a funny way
of turning
porous and
falling off

the total
effect is one
of disintegration
under the weight
of disease

my eyes are bleeding
I think I need to go
to the hospital
