Ekphrastic 9/Breaking Bad

Worms were once human
crawling took their limbs.
when you pray to the pig
it is safer to spit yourself in the image
pray with a toss
of a coin, the die, a loophole of slippery entrails.

or just go headless.

[Ekphrasis is art in reaction to art. Basically. And I don’t think about the art I consume enough. And I haven’t been writing poetry as much as I should. So every Friday, I’ll post an ekphrastic poem about whatever art I’ve been eating lately (books, poetry, anime, paintings, films, so on).]
