Mortality Memoriam by Rod Carlos Stryker

crimson blood
still flows, still charges
through old veins
slow to keep
pathways uncluttered

drab heart
with quiet beats, silent efforts
to keep limbs stirring,
synapses firing

orange and red ambers
glow lethargic , sweet silence
calls corporeal coil
to rest,
and sleep.
