Abscessed

Poisoned pen’s purge, pus and debris like stew stock
brought to slow boil, simmering over old wounds –
black infections shared by contagion’s mold rot
squeezing its abscess.

Septic ulcer, stained by internal chaos
leaking slander’s dirty deceit through sweat pores
scarred like death’s breath. (Shouldn’t we have this looked at
by a physician?)
