Death and Earth

 
 

From the morning ray to the lamps’ death

The sun has just straighten out in the earth

So frosty it ought to hot.

 


 

Dust to dust, modeling in nude

Engagement has become of everyone’s act apart from the dirt

Isn’t the dust tired of reminiscing?

 
 

Love ones in her proclivity lying still in peace

Not excluding, cool tears droplets from those who mourn.

Notoriety and reputation as old as her age, not so joyful to her sympathy

 
 

Dust to dust, modeling in nude

Souls left the earth with decayed bodies

Her body never is filling, as his dining table taste is frequent

 
 

The female transitional has no opinion but the male is gloomy

Not smiling with a dog tooth but more dangerous than evaluated

Comes at a time when the sun is quiescent.

Comment

The use of imagery is highly tactical here, “Death” stand for a male (his), and also dirt.

Also, Dust (Female; her) and Pain represented Earth.
