Black branches by Geoffery Mwanza

Geoffery Mwanza | November 19th, 2018 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

A chunk of mold- melting flesh dangles from his torso.
And in the distance, a plague of Corvus perch on black branches, peering through the black smoke.

Curious children join the agitated crowd that is gathered in the midst of the smothering heat whilst the odour of brittle-burning skin lingers beneath their nostrils

Screams of delight morph into whispers beyond the deafening sounds of despair.
